Every once in a while, I bring 'em out at a session - after I know what keys the band knows.

And when I'm playing my solo acoustic stuff, I'll do a set playing "rack" once in a while - particularly when it's gonna be a LONG time playing.

Then, my favorite harp is a bigass Suz " Humming" tremo in C - king of the unplugged market square.

If I can get anyones attention with that, I start playing " Cross Harp Diatonic - Racked" for as long as I can hear nickels clinking.

MM, not so much in Portland, with snow on the ground.

This is one old dog has to roll over.

Anyone else get mixed emotions when they watch or hear music being performed that well? I tend to get a bit discouraged at first, because I love the blues so much and would thoroughly enjoy hearing myself play if I was half that good, but then it makes you realize that maybe it takes a certain amount of natural ability also, or a lifetime of devotion. I dunno, all I do know is that if ya close your eyes and really listen, it sure brings forth bunches of emotion!

Keep on Bluesin'!

There's a local player called Robert Lighthouse who was heavily influenced by Dr. Ross. He has some kind of homemade mic (I think it's an element in some kind of holder) that he plugs into an amp. He has a nice electric one man band harp sound. You can hear him on his website:

I love Slim Harpo, so maybe I'll start with Scratch My Back. I love that guitar riff.

Walter, I'm glad to hear about the blues rack, and how it works well for you. I already have a dylan type rack, so I'll stick with it.

Went to a used record store and found Jimmy Reed at Carnegie Hall, and the best of Jimmy Reed, with a forty five thrown in, Big John on one side and Goin to Mississippi on the other. I can't wait to spin those up, as I believe he played guitar and harp at the same time?

Off topic, but I noticed in the store that the jimmy reed album has the labels reversed, side one label on side two, and vise versa. Anyone have any info on this? I'm hopin' it's really rare and worth a couple hundred bucks. :D

Thanks again and Keep on Bluesin'! 8)
