Ive always fumbled around with different musical instruments as a kid. From the violin to the guitar both electric and acoustic as well as my fathers harmonica which was a chromatic from what I remember it was a Honer from the 70s and my $3 Jews Harp. I think I had a lot fun with the Jews Harp back then. Never really learned anything. Had too much energy and not enough patients. Well, things are different and I a tad bit older with more patients and time for creativity. I’m here to learn how to really play the harmonica from the soul.
On Christmas Day I purchased JP’s Happy Harpin DVDs and I am pleasantly surprised how detailed JP is about teaching the Harmonica. I was bending notes the first day just doing fundamentals. I purchased the 5 pack of Special 20s, oh my what a phenomenal sounding instrument. The Special 20 is a great go to instrument for learning as well as performing. After lip locking the Special 20 I do not want to play the one that came with the lessons. Once you try a Special 20 I find it difficult to play anything other than the Special 20.
