Hi folks. I’ve been in music, playing guitar, mandolin, bass, trumpet, drums, percussion and singing for years. Sometimes for money, sometimes for fun. In March 2009 I joined a Christian blues and classic rock style band as vocalist and percussionist, having just left a different band that went metal. when the band leader heard i was “fooling around with harmonica a little” he mistook that for “i play harmonica too.” I decided to go for it and had less than 3 months before my first blues festival playing harp. It was a trial by fire and i wasn’t nearly ready…but made it through, even getting some accolades from some respected musicians in my area. Of course, by that time i was hooked and really wanted to explore the instrument outside the blues. I continue to do that. I play folk, rock, blues, gospel, whatever pops up at jam night…ever hear a harp solo on “purple rain?” It is possible and it sounds pretty nice, so i’m told…lol. anyway, here i am.
I have some pretty extensive sound reinforcement experience as well as recording experience and like to discuss mixing, effects, PA gear, mics, whatever. Most of what i seem to do with that experience on the internet is try and debunk incorrect information, it seems. There are many myths and some outright lies, as in every world-wide web topic you might google. gear is quite a topic and opinions will always vary…but they are opinions and certain principles will always stick.
That’s enough of me …i’ll see you guys around the forum…JP rocks!
