I just took up harmonica a month and a half ago and am having a blast with these things. I have been all over the web searching and learning to play some riffs after watching some of the greats on YouTube. I also signed up for JP’s newsletter and look forward to his videos he sends out. Thank you JP for starting this forum and inviting us all to join. I think I have read just about every post there is on here and enjoy hearing what others are doing. I cannot believe how addicting this little piece of metal and plastic(or wood) can be.
I play keyboard in a classic rock and roll band and thought that the band needed some kind of additional sound. So, being a bit of a smart guy, I asked my daughter to buy me a harmonica for my birthday. Of course my wife was really happy about that one. So, not knowing any better, my daughter got me a harp in the key of E as that was the key the band played in quite a bit. How quickly I found out that that was the wrong answer. Didn’t know about cross harp. Couldn’t take it back, she had it engraved.
Wasn’t a week later, I bought a set of BluesBands with a case on the internet and have now gotten to the point of starting to upgrade. Just picked up a couple of Lee Oskars today.
I love playing and look for opportunities to play and look forward to reading these forums daily.
Happy harpin and hope to hear from you guys.
