Subject: Taj On TV

Did anyone catch Taj Mahal on some late night talk show Thanksgiving
night ? He played a funky blues I think "Blues Aint Nothin'" was the
name. Pretty good for TV. He got to stretch out on harp and played and
sang through the same mic. Good example of Taj having such good control
over the tone of the harp he didnt need a special set up. Great vocals
too!

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.

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.
