I love the Yardbirds "Smokestack Lightning".
I've been trying to learn the harp riffs in it a little piece at a time. I've only been at it few months & don't have a great ear. Some sounds I'll get right away but others I have a hard time figuring out. Today on the way to work I managed
to get another little riff down. Kind of gives you a good feeling when that happens. I ain't hugging my mailman though........Dave B
: Another rainy day in England (same as always) so I thought I'd spend some time talking with me adopted harmonica family.
: You know sometimes when your practising hard and you finally get there,you just want to run into the street and hug the first person you see...my postman thinks I'm mad!!Take for instance a Steve Baker (check him out) c.d. that comes with his book "The harp handbook" he plays some train riffs first slowly and then fast.well the first time I heard him play it fast,I said to myself "you're having a laugh mate!" I kept at it though and last night without even thinking about it I picked up my harp and just did it....."YES!!" Where's that postman!
: I'd love to hear your stories
