Greetings from Belgium
Hello to you all,
My name is Kris Bries from Bluesin' Belgium
and I'm really excited of finally having found
a communication channel with other harp players.
As our Blues Harp scene is not that big,it's not
so easy to get some information.(and I don't have the
courage to ask Toots Thielemans for some info)
I'm playing in a R&B band and we're mixing
songs from the old masters (Little Walter & Sonny Boy)
with songs from Rod Piazza , Paul Lamb & King Snakes (UK)
and other.....I'm only playing diatonic harp for two years
so I still have a long way to go. So most of my articles
will contain questions, in stead of advice. Well here
are some questions !!!
1) I'm playing with a Bluesblaster (Hohner) connected through
an equalizer pedal (BOSS) to a Fender Vibroverb 50W (Re-issue)
On the equalizer I put the low tones a lot higher than
the high tones to get more "boost". I wander if some of you
would have some suggestions for improving my sound.
Is my amplifier suited for playing blues harp?
Should I buy some additional equipment to get more distortion
(or should I take one of the tubes out of the amp., like they
used to do in the old days)?
2) Can I have some suggestions about learning blues songs
How do you learn your songs?
"You got to help me...I can't do it all by myself..."
Thks in advance
