I just jammed with a guy who is primarily a harp/vocal guy but has begun the guitar journey as well.

I joined the TalkMusic bunch because I know the guy who set up the room and it's also an offshoot of a forum I've been a member of for several years now. I've gotten a good part of my education via the internet in the last 12-15 years when it comes to blues. After a short time at TalkMusic I was asked to mod the harmonica page. So there I am trying to get a couple of guy started on harp!
Being self taught for years and never getting much real music education, I may not be the best teacher, but I am doing what I can and not shy about pointing to more complete resources for new guys.

The big issue with learning an instrument is putting in the time, getting over your frustrations and as Clint said -knowing your limitations

The great thing about the harp is the portability-I play drums, guitar , hand percussion etc.
I picked up the harp because it was portable and got tired of dragging other instruments around.

I haven't been playing long( bout a year and a half) but I play about 2 hours a day and that has made a tremendous difference. I am also not shy about breaking the harp out at my day job, beach etc and on breaks when the rest of the band is taking a break. Like any instrument somedays are diamonds and some are coal ( thanks billy Joe shaver)

The weird thing is that I work out licks on the guitar and then transpose to harp-worked up a good version of Dust my broom this morning-but had to see it on the fret board to put it on the harp

I'm not trying to snag anybody from here, I like and visit this joint regularly as well! Since I began the internet portion of the harp adventure I have looked for more and broader experience at a lot of different sites. In a way this is a small effort to pay a bit back.

Hope to see you once in a while over there!
