*Album comment- Dave Gage's first album from 1990 is 80's pop, rock, and blues influenced. The harmonica on this album is very diverse and features many styles of playing on both diatonic and chromatic harmonicas. The solo instrumental, "Tap", is a classic example of the rock style tongue-switching techique he pioneered (a la Eddie Van Halen guitar 'tapping'). Buy this CD.

  • Standard diatonic harmonica played in the 2nd position- Unless otherwise noted, all harmonica on this CD is done on a standard diatonic harmonica played in the 2nd position (cross harp).

  • Basic Blues Improv Section- Refer to the Basic Blues Improv section for information and methods on how to play along with the music.

  • Play with any song, with or without recorded harmonica- If you're already familar with the music, there is no reason for you not to add harmonica to it. Initially, the easiest albums to play along with would be the standard blues, country, and folk records.

  • Terms and "accidentals" defined- In the "Key of Song" column, 'E' means the key of 'E' major, and 'Em' signifies the key of 'E' minor. The '#' sign refers to a sharped note (raised one half-step) and the 'b' sign refers to a flatted note (lowered by one half-step).
