Mic Kaczmarczik’s USENET Articles

Mic Kaczmarczik has been collection USENET articles about guitars, equipment,
pickup, techniques, players, and so on for some time. Mic has graciously granted
permission to post the stuff on the JT30 page on the off chance that it might
be useful in the context of Blues Harmonica. Mic is not responsible for the
content, just the collection.

Here is what I have so far:

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.
