I used a Hohner Big River harp ( bout 25 bux) a jt30 astatic mike ( bout 50 bucks ) and a Fender Champ 600 ( $ 100 )

Suck evenly don't smoke and keep your reeds wet---Listen to Little Walter, Slim Harpo and Magic Dick)

Other guys may have said the same thing but I get a headache looking at cycle of 5ths and such . Unless that fifth has OLd Crow in it


Yes your chest will hurt just like your fingertips did when you learned to bend strings

1st is mostly all blow notes. 2nd is a lot of draw notes on the first 6 holes. 3rd is a lot of draw notes from hole 3 through 10, or with tongue blocking you can use all 10 holes. you cover 4 holes with your mouth and use your tongue to block the 2 middle holes of the harp. then you move that configuration up and down the harp. it sounds harder than it is.

i don't know where Allan got that chart and it may be technically correct from a guitarists' viewpoint but it's misleading to a harp player. here's what key the root is and what key harp goies with it in 3rd: A- G.....B- A...C- Bb...D, C....E, A...F, Eb...G, F... a circle of 5ths is much easier to get the hang of.

I found that you can really bend notes with the way you blow and draw. It's pretty amazing. I'm probably not as good as I think I am. I just need to watch a few youtube videos of guys that could kick my ass with one note.

Now my other question. Any jam tracks online that you guys could point me to? The ones I found are midi and kind of boring.

Thanks.

i think there could be a great player that stays in second all the time!

to play in third ,WHICH DOES NOT HAVE TO BE MINOR!!!,Simply use the key below.for G,use and F harp,for A ,use a G harp.etc.

for first position,use the same key harp as the song.for A,use an A,etc.

How I approach it is like this. If the root of a song is the E chord, then I use an E harp, or A harp (3rd position?) is that right or would it be a G harp.
