My comments were meant for those fairly new and inexperienced with jam
sessions. If you're good and experienced, you can do anything you want. But
from what I've seen, green harp players over-play, big time, and is one
reason guitarists and other musicians can act snotty towards harpers.

There's a lot of vocal instruction out there. I'm familiar with "Born to
Sing, The Vocal Power Method", by Elizabeth Howard and Howard Austin. It
think it's great. They cover many styles. Taking a few lessons from a vocal
instructor can be extremely helpful, assuming you get the right instructor.
