    About 5 years ago, i decided to raise my harp playing to a much higher 
level. Up to then, I had messed with harp, figured out second position enough to 
sort of play blues at jam sessions, but only once in awhile did it ever go 
really well.
    I went to one David Barrett Masterclass, then started going to Buckeye 
every year and my harp playing has improved..   A lot.. Now that isn't saying 
I'm good yet, and life has again stepped in front of me and curtailed my harp 
practice, but I feel like I have a clue now. The friends I made at Buckeye, the 
great harp playing I heard that inspired me and showed me where I need to go, 
you can't get that out of a book.
My two cents.

still a fool for the harp
