Subject: Honner Blues Blaster durability

Last night Sugar Blue was playing at the Cafe Campus in Montreal.
Sugar uses a Blues Blaster thru a small Mesa Boogie. At one point
during the first set, he reached for a harp (Special 20) lying on his amp
and sent his mic flying. The B.B. went up about 3 feet then down 8 feet
with a loud thud. He picked it up, started to play and the mic sounded fine.
My own B.B. has taken several quick trips from my hands to the
cement basement floor when I accidently step on the mic wire. Haven't
had and crystal problems yet but the paint is missing a few chips.

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.

Harp Tab

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.
