: Ok...scenario. I buy my harp, slowly build up my skills on it...played "Down in the Valley" about 50,000 times. And just recently got bending down pat. But one thing Im beginning to realize is, not that many people like the harp. I tell some people I play the harmonica and they usually go something like "Oh...thats nice...heh". The people I thought would back me up in it, my friends, have now dubbed it the whore-monica. Ive even travelled out to the nearby city of Reading PA to local blues bars, where they have live music, and still have yet to see another harper. I just love the blues harmonica, so much soul, yet such fun too. Is this just some odd depression in my area? Thanks for reading, jam on.
Be proud, have fun, enjoy the journey. Your traveling a road only a select few get to see. I occasionally remind myself this is one thing I'm doing totally for me, this makes my practice time a blast. Along your road you will eventually meet people that appreciate the joy you've found, this board is packed with them. Maybe some day we'll find ourselves on the same road at the same time, I look forward to it.
