Great to make your aquaintance, as you say I had to assume there were
some limys or whatever, but no-one showed above the horizon. Everyone
talks of harps. We of course know only the Welsh & Irish play them !

I might be if it stands for a Nearly Had-it Liverpudlian. If there is
another group please tell me of it.

Me too, but moved into jam & jazz with friends which I really enjoy. I
started a band at work and we play at our Christmas do. They are all
semi-pro so I am the poor relation, but they let me in cause I
organised it. Best fun I have all year.

Know it well, having been to companies there. I live in Leicester and
work for a pressure measurement company called Druck, who you can find
on (all my own work).

Look forward to more from you, and any other Great Britons.

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.
