I remember riding in the car with my mom when I was in fourth grade and the
old Aerosmith song, "Big Ten Inch" came on the air. I sat that and just
tuned into the sound of Steven Tylor's harp, and fell in love with that raw
and dirty sound. It was right around my birthday so I asked for one. Ma
got me a Special 20 in A. I played it and didn't like how I sounded. I
would never be Steven Tylor. I tried to return it, an it was then that I
knew. . .once you put your lips to a harp, you're trapped for life.
Does anyone remember the first time you bent a note? For me that was a
much more significant day. . .
