I would recomend playing along to some 12 bar blues tunes. Three albums I can suggest are: Muddy Waters "Hard Again" (with James Cotton on Harp)Willie Dixon's "I am the Blues" and Clapton's "From the Cradle" with Jerry Portnoy harpin.
There's a nice combination of slow and fast blues to fit your needs, and the harp playing on the album will give you sone great ideas.
Also, "Amazing Grace" and "swing low, sweet chariot" can be played in straight harp, or in a bluesy, cross harp style.
Good luck. keep harpin
