Dear Harp-Lers

Can anyone recommend some good instructional stuff for diatonic blues
harp? Some material is not very helpful because it attempts to
explain in one paragraph how to bend notes, etc. Has anyone tried
David Barrett's "Classic Chicago Blues Harp" book and CD? Thanks for
any suggestions.

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.
