In a welcome comment J.P. said “you’ll meet a lot of characters”.
I believe he’s right!
You don’t flock to play the harmonica for peer approval.
You don’t choose the harmonica because it’s every bands cool lead instrument.
You don’t continue to learn-because you decided to learn something “easy” to play.
Mommas don’t rush to have their kids in a harmonica recital.
Nope, a harmonica guy is a stand up dude. He’s got your back. He chooses his friends and his instruments, 'cause he likes them. His (her) choice…and that my friend, is a character–with character.
