Introduce Yourself!

Hi @brucepigeon. Welcome to the forum. I’m a guitarist as well, and blues is a big part of that. I too am a newb at the harp, but am enjoying the course.

I’m looking forward to hearing about your progress!

Hi all
Signed up for BtoB a few days ago and lovin it. I’m from Southern England and have been wanting to learn the harp for most of my life. My mum used to put a harmonica in my Christmas stocking when I was young but it never really happened, she was German so she loved music, she would be pleased!
Getting on great at the moment but I know there will be bumpy roads ahead😀
Tight notes!

Hi Dug @Dug,

Welcome to the forum. I’m sure your Mum is looking down with very proud eyes and will continue to be an inspiration for you to continue with the lessons, even when tough techniques make your progress slow down.

Regards,

Hello @Dug,
welcome to us and have fun learning to play the harp. Your mom will hear it and be happy because music is the bridge between heaven and earth. Do you speak German also? In any case, I send you best regards from Germany. Astrid

Hello Astrid
Yes, I agree with what you say, music can be magical. It’s my poetry!
No, sadly I don’t speak much German, it wasn’t the “cool” thing to do when I was younger :frowning: My youngest sister has lived most of her life in Germany, her kids always get top marks in their English lessons at school!
Kind regards
Dug.

Hi All,
Brand new harp owner here in Northern Virginia. I received a Special20 in C for Christmas and started the Beginner to Boss class about a week after and been thoroughly enjoying it. I’ve been very pleased with the class and the way it progresses. I’ve had a little bit of experience with guitar and ukulele and Jr High school band. That’s helped with chord numbers and other bits of music theory that are introduced in the class.

Welcome to the forum @JohnnyData! Any experience with another instrument helps with learning the next one. I’m in the early part of the B2B course myself, having started in November. Like you, I’m enjoying the course.

Keep us up to date as you progress. We all like to hear about others’ musical journey.
