I just registered today and I thought I would introduce myself. My name is Mark and I have been dabbling with the harmonica for about a couple years on and off. Mostly off. I started with lessons from the Harmonica Academy and learned a lot from there and can play quite a few songs from memory. They don’t sound great, but I can get clear and consistent single notes.
I’ve been on JP’s emailing list for about the same amount of time and decided to come to the forum and have a look around. It seems there are quite a few here who have had success with his CD/DVD set. I didn’t want to spend that much two years ago, but have since changed my mind. So I have the set coming in the mail. I’ve already started the first lesson on line. I think I will learn a lot from his lessons. JP seems like a really good teacher and an all around positive person. I look forward to gleaning as much as I can from him.
To keep my practice from falling behind or stopping altogether I plan on doing the ‘Harmonica Buddy’ idea JP suggested. This week’s goal is to spend ten minutes a day practicing breathing and phrasing as described on the Getting Campfire Ready 1.
And in case anyone was interested my username is an acronym for what I do- Radar, Air Traffic Control And Landing Systems.
