You might as well learn 'em if you're hellbent on learnin' yer instrument, but nobody'll miss 'em if ya' don't play 'em. It depends on the market you're in and if you think it'll help your band compete for gigs. There's plenty of great harpers who never use 'em. IMO Jason Ricci's got a style of his own anyway..kind of a John Popper who makes sense (and that statement does Jason a horrible injustice), in that he can play alot of notes that say something and doesn't try to be a little Little Walter. Overblows can help get a crowd goin' at times.
