Hello and greetings from Pennsylvania! I am 42 years old and live outside Philadelphia with my lovely wife and two wonderful daughters…and twins on the way! :o I have always wanted to play the harmonica for as long as I can remember. Throughout the years I have owned a few cheap ones, you know the starter kits that come with a harmonica and the book of how to play the songs you love. Well, I never stuck to it and frankly always became very frustrated with the lack of instruction.
This desire resurfaced partly because I am active with my church’s youth group and I think that the ability to play the harmonica is a great way to bring joy to people. So of course I went to the internet to see what I could find about playing the harmonica and came across JP Allen’s DVD course, which lead me to this forum. So after a few days of reading through some posts and watching some incredible you-tube videos, I decided to order JP Allen’s Course. I can not wait to receive it and I am also looking forward to learning from everyone on the forum.
Well, I do not want to bore you with anymore about me, but my goal is to one day put up my own you tube video playing a song and I expect the members of the forum to keep me to this goal. I also hope to one day have my daughters join me, they are both exploring music, both vocally and instrumentally. Lastly, I look forward to getting to know the members on this forum as I grow with the harmonica.
