Hmm…I think I answered a similar post like this not too long ago…
After scratching my head (and butt) several times, Eureka I found it:
Thing is – Regardless of where/how you jump into the pool of our vast & mighty Harmonica Universe – As I say many times and say again: You gotta have a plan, man (and woman!)
Along with JP Allen’s best selling, world’s most favorite home harmonica course boxed DVD set – where many of us new players begin this fun exciting journey into the world of harp – Still, there’s so many options, places, styles of music, etc. to visit, see, behold and participate in.
Sure, early on, it can be overwhelming and yes, even frustrating at times. But that’s all part of life too!
Once you get past those humps, and you will – Then the harmonica world smiles and opens up to you again, and you find it’s still exciting and fun to be part of!
And while it’s easy for me (or anyone) to get discouraged by the fact that the more I learn about harp the less I really know about it at all – Well, not so really! I turn that on its head and say:
A little bit of knowledge in Harmonica Universe is a lot of knowledge in Harmonica Universe! I believe it’s absolutely true once it gets into your skin, blood and bones!
If it hasn’t already!
JP Allen, Tony Eyers, Dave Gage, Howard Levy, Jon Gindick, Adam Gussow – the list of harp teachers goes on and on…
Hohner, Lee Oskar, Suzuki – the makes/models seem endless too…
But in the final analysis: It’s really not the end that counts, but how much fun you have getting anywhere harpin’ along the way that truly does!
