: Dear harp readers
: I may have the chance to play in a band with a good

: with this (I think Bluz does anyway) and I would appreciate
: the feedback you can give me. This guy's tenor sax sounds
: nice and loud and he can play in all keys by ear. What
: type of rig would be most suitable? How not to be intimidated
: by a good sax player?
: Thank you for all your input. All tips welcome


I hate to say this, but the best way not to be intimidated is to have your stuff together. Know the songs, keys, and changes. I use my Blues Deluxe or Pro Junior, Jt-30 with Green Bullet element, it's plenty loud. You can do a good job thru the PA with a Shure 57 or 58. I have played with tenor, alto, and baritone sax players. Its a great way to learn some horn lines. Steal everything you can. Just remember to give everyone some space. A harmonica is not meant to be played non-stop in most cases. Let others get their solos, and dont walk on the vocals, unless your doing back rythms. Best of Luck and Congratulations...........Bluz
