: The best harp for Country is the one you like to play. IMHO You cant beat the sound of a wood body Marine Band. Theres a sound and feeling that touches the soul. One note played right can say more than a whole song. The history of the M B predates the Civil War. How do you proceed? Charlie McCoy or Clint Black is an excellent start. Listen listen listen and steal every dam thing you can. Charlie McCoy is one of the most recorded harmonica players bar none and his achievements are too numerous to mention. If youre following him you cant go wrong.....
I agree with you that Charlie McCoy is an absolutely great harmonicist whose accomplishments are too numerous to mention. However, after reading about Charlie McCoy, I think that the fact that in the 1960's, he played bass and guitar on some of Bob Dylan's landmark rock albums and in 1977, took over the
position of music director of the popular C&W TV show Hee Haw, definitely deserves mention.
If I'm a walking almanac of music, then I give you credit for being the walking encyclopedia of music. I enjoy your contributions to this site.
