Re: OT: Harmonica (harmonica players worth listening)

nice stuff man...i envy your ability to bend on the hi end..I'm kind of stuck in the 1-4-5 blues thing with harp right now (as in my YouTube link below) but i did picked up Glenn Weiser's book on bluegrass harp...I've stopped playing publicly for the time being ..may be i should go back to home working stuff ;-)

Hi guys

>dude  ...bad math.....sugar blue is only 63 yrs old and playing now...
LOL... sorry I was being a bit judgemental here, indeed... Of course Sugar Blue is absolutely a great harp player & blues musician (and not 100 years old ;-) ). I kind of have put all players in pre-war to chicago blues tradition into one basket.
Jason Ricci, Gregoire Maret, Brendan Power are all great musicians (and Brendan is really a sweet guy, indeed!).
I should have known that people on LD list are usually open minded and well-versed.

I'm really sorry. But I've been so frustrated in the past. Because I rather play stuff like this on the harp:
And I'm usually confronted by very rigid expectations what a harp player is "supposed" to play/sound like.
Don't have this problem on other, rather well established instruments - so I'm kind of on the brim of giving up...

thanks for your responses
