Subject: Newbie questions

Pardon me if the following are old ground, I'm a new kid. <;g>;

1. I've been playing about 4 months total over a period of several years
(just got back to it). I prefer blues and blues-based rock. I've not been
able to find anything in the way of instructional material that's above the
"put mouth over the 1-2-3 holes and blow" level. Any and all suggestions
are welcome.

2. Any recommendations for regular reading, like magazines, newsletters,
etc.?

3. Does anyone out there know of a blues player named Steve Guyger? He's
from Philly originally. He and I used to play together occasionally at the
house of a mutual friend and I've long since lost touch with him. The last
I heard him was easily 15 years ago and he was excellent then. I've heard
he's been on the road a lot since, but would welcome any news of him if
anyone knows anything.

Thanks,

Chon

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.

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.
