I'm not by any means a classical harmonica player but it's fun to play some
of that stuff.
Here's a piece it's not perfect but it has it's moments. The best thing is
I've finally gotten
the two finger hand vibrato to sing. This a Cham ber and Robert B thing.
Enjoy it for what it is.
....I wish more people here would post their own video or audio clips. I
find actual harmonica music, harmonica tutorials and harmonica tweaking much
more interesting topics of conversation than the standard gear talk, and am
always fascinated to hear other's progress. 'Gear' is mildly interesting, but
music is much more the reason I'm here.
Couple of pieces I re-visited yesterday: Brendan Power playing The Coolin
from his Lament for the 21st Century CD...(and the title track...which is
absolutely brilliant and innovative whether it's to your taste or not, is
accessible at the same site)....had to have another listen to James Conway doing
that bagpipe drone on two harps with his throat..and Joe Filisko paying homage
to DeFord Bailey.
...what stands out for me with all three of these wonderful players is the
complete lack of 'fussiness'...no overt hand fluttering, showmanship,
etc...just pure, stripped down and nakedly beautiful acoustic playing:
Brendan Power: The Coolin
James Conway: Bagpipe Drone
