Re: [Harp-L] 3rd position blues harp

Hey Mark,

William Clarke's awesome instrumental "Blowin' the
Family Jewels" is a tremendous 3rd position
workout, playing over a jazz-boogie thing in A
major using G harp in 3rd. That should keep you
busy for a while. 

Lots of funky 3rd in Junior Well's classic album
Hoodoo Man Blues.

And of course, look to George Harmonica Smith. He
played a lot of 3rd diatonic in his early
recordings. Check out "Now You Can Talk About Me"
with Rod Piazza. First half of the album is old
stuff with a lot of 3rd pos. diatonic, 2nd half is
mostly chromatic blues w. Rod on a few recordings.
Classic stuff. 

Just some fodder for ya. 

Harpin' in Colorado,
