Subject: Re: two or more harpers

Calling all duos and trios,
Those interested in the sound of two or more blues harpers playing
together have mentioned the "Harp Attack" album and the Big Walter/Carey
Bell album. May I also suggest the '93 release by "Have Mercy". It's put
out by CrossCut Records. This lively group features three harp players,
Steve Baker, Rory Macleod, and Henry Heggen. They do amazing things
together and seperately. For those of you who have never tried alternate
tuned harps, there are a couple of cuts on this CD where Baker demonstrates
his SBS tuning to great effect, and two more where he plays a "Country
tuned Harp". Check it out.

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.
