Subject: harp duets

Hey there, folks. . .

I been playing for a couple years now, but never really blew any harp
with another harpist. . .

Well, I found someone here down at school to jam with. . . and was
curious if anyone had any pointers on harp "duets". I vaugely remember
reading something about one playing straight and the other playing cross.

I was thinking the best way would be doing it like a couple of
guitars, one playing rhythm and the other soloing. . .

What have you experienced that worked best?

Thanks,

Your (blues) brother,

ken

harps." -- Revelation 14:2

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 JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.
