Hi everyone,

Some time ago, I saw "The Jack of Hearts" on TV, with Kim Snelten who plays
the harmonica. They're not really playing blues, but some good rock music.
At the end of one of the songs, all the members of the group went off stage
and Kim Snelten was playing a solo on his harp. It was something like a
train sound, and it was great.
It was not just blowing and drawing some chords, but I think he was doing
it by moving his tongue to change between chords and single notes.
Has anyone suggestions on this tongue-effect, or is there another way to
imitate that train sound ?
Can somebody tell me where I can find more train-imitations (CD's, harp
players, riffs, ...).


Geert.

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.
