I'd say that my week at Augusta several years ago was an epiphany for me.
Total immersion in blues harmonica for a solid week with outstanding
teachers, a beautiful environment at Davis & Elkins College, and the chance
to pick up so many little riffs, ideas, techniques from the teachers and
your classmates too. I took the intermediate/advanced course from Larry too,
and it expanded my harp horizons immensely. It is an intense, nearly
round-the-clock experience with classroom study, meetings, and evening jam
sessions that go on til the wee early hours. In my opinion, a great
investment to my harpicology/harmonicology degree. If you haven't been, give
Augusta some serious thought!
