: Greetings from the heart of the Miss Delta and home of the Blues! I found this site searching for how to info on the harp because I finally gave up smoking and have always wanted to learn to wail the blues. I went bought a special 20 in C and hope it helps keep me busy in a fun a long lasting way.
: Lots of great info at this site, BOY is it ever great to be able to go someplace like this and learn.
: Just reading about keys and steps and half steps and all that, it's not exactly as easy as jello and I guess thats just fine because I at least sort of can understand it.
: I read the 6 week lessons, Im in no hurry and really want to do this right. If that schedule is truly a good one to follow then I suppose I will take the "long route" and do the first steps twice as long as you could get away with.
: I learned how to play guitar all wrong a long time ago and I never got over it. I dont want that to happen to this and more than willing to be deligent in my practice routine, but I just want to do it right from the start and just do my best.
: Any advice is much appreciated, this site is great, I'm not going to ask questions because there is a heck of a lot to learn here before I need to do that!
: HELLOOOOOOOOO From The CROSSROADS!!!!!!!!!
