The lowdown on the Mississippi Sax. Just for Google, this section is about harmonicas.

Oh I wish I could see and hear them Steve,
but sadly for me, :(
at work I got an obsolete version of Flash and not authorized to upgrade anything,
then at home we got a dial-up connection too slow for videos.
I got me a video out on myspace, and can no longer see it my own self. :cry:

I am harp-illiterate: Key of D with a G harp, that means cross harp, right?

I like G harps the best becasue I think they are the lowest pitched, no?

I got a Hohner Marine Band G harp about maybe 40 or 45 years old, that and 2 or 3 other harps (C, A, and C push-button), but I never learned to play them worth a dang.

Hey, you got any of your music posted on the web that is just audio, not video?

Steve, welcome to the forum! Ya' wanna tell us a little more about yerself...? It'll help you to escape any criticism regarding self-promotion if you jump in and add to the discussion threads. I listened to your videos; you sure got that brown tone workin'. I couldn't really hear the backing tracks very well on my computer at work, so the whole thing was outa balance.

Yes, I have professionally recorded songs on each of the following 2 sites.

http://www.purevolume.com/stevedharvell

http://www.myspace.com/stevedharvell

And yes, the backing tracks in the videos where not as loud as my Pignose amp, all I had at the time was a little $19.95 cd player, sorry about that. I was just messing around in my son's old bedroom, he is 24 and moved out after college. I have a website at http://bluzharp.tripod.com/

I am nothing fancy, like you guys/gals/ just playing for fun. I played in a honky tonk band and a blues band at the same time for seven years and now I like just doing a duo thing with a good friend Daniel Sean (acoustic/ electric guitar and vocals) . We gig every weekend from 1 to 3 times and having fun.

We were jus' talkin' about duos on some thread here last week...I think it was somethin' jawbone brought up. I play harp and I love guitar/harp and piano/harp duo stuff. I've done alot of it. It's really good for building your versatility on harp, mixing comps, melody lines, fills, etc. It sounds like you got a good thang goin' there Steve.

Actually fellas the first video out of the four I posted on top was not the one I meant to use(I did not like that one so much). Here is the one I meant to use, I did this video on father's day this year.

I do enjoy the duo gigging thing, I get to play a whole lot more than a full band, I love it.

Have a great week everyone. Oh yes, here is a video using a low tuned d TurboHarp that I did in honor of my cat that died in Jan. of this year.

I loved that cat more than most human beings I know.
