My perfect practice setup

One of the greatest parts of a harmonica over my bagpipes is you can grab one anytime and practice. No tuning, no setup, just go.

But, to feel productive and focused, I’ve got a little practice corner in my house. I mic and pedal my harmonica, then use over-the-ear headphones to listen to Luke’s videos. It works GREAT for me! I can still hear my sound (that I’m still dialing in) on the amp, but have Luke and the backing tracks right in my ear. Yesterday I found myself eyes closed, just feeling the music and experimenting with rhythms (was supposed to be working on 8th notes, wandered off into some dot/cuts).

Anyway, just thought I’d share what works for me.
