Subject: Lookin' for Lessons in the DC/MD area

As a birthday present, my wife is buying me some number of hours of
harmonica lessons. She doesn't actually think I need 'em (which is
sweet, but she's wrong) - she's doing htis because I want them.

I'd call my skill level intermediate. I'll get up at an open jam
session, do some unstructured blues stuff, miss a good bit of what
I try for, and then have folks tell me how great it sounded. (Ain't
blues great??)

Anyway, I'd like some more formal training. I'm 39, have played with a
harp since I was 15 and been willing to stand up in public for about
7 years, though I don't do it often. (3-4 times a year, tops, all
open-mike stuff).

Any recommendations on folkks who teach in the DC aarea (I live in Silver
Spring, MD) would be most appreciated.

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.

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.
