Subject: New, old Big Walter

After digging through the used record, sorry CD, bin Friday, I bought an old
Vanguard "Chicago, The Blues, Today Vol. 3". Thirteen tracks of prime
Chi-town blues by three different bands...

Johnny Young's South Side Blues Band, Walter Horton, harp
Johnny Shine's Blues Band, Walter Horton, harp
Big Walter Horton's Blues Harp Band with Memphis Charlie (yes, Musselwhite)

This was recorded in '66 so the recording is thin by today's standards, but
for Big Walter fans, it's tremendous. I just checked and it's available from
CDnow, so it's probably not out of print. Their on-line review gives it high
marks also.

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.

Harp Tab

A collection of songs and riffs that I’ve worked out over the years, plus some libraries of stuff I’ve converted to tablature. I’ve included most of the notes and instructions that helped me when I was learning to play blues harmonica.
