Re: [Harp-L] lips

Abreva is the best ointment to use at the earliest sign of a cold sore (Herpes). It will speed up the healing time and to speed it up ven faster, take 1 (500mg) Lysine (amino acid) tablet a day during each episode.

However to help prevent the onset of lip sores and to sooth sore and overworked lips from hard playing, practice and weather like sun and cold etc... try "Original Lip Session with Vitamin E" from E.Burnham, they also make a Lysine Onintment as well which I haven't yet tryed.

page down to the yellow little container and order the Original Formula (Vanilla) not the banana or flavored ones....
IMO, this is the best stuff to use to PREVENT sores,,,,,apply AFTER playing and practice and before bed at night. the is 2 for $4.50

hope this helps, Rob Paparozzi

Do any of you apply lip balm such as chap stick prior to playing. Maybe a
cleaning of my harps once or twice a year may help. LOL. Trying that new
stuff Abreva will update as I am sure you all are curious about my lip

Based on some  discussion on The List regarding Country-Tuned Harps
for  non-country songs (in particular Richard Hunter's comment that
 he'd take a Country-Tuned C-harp if stuck on a deserted island with
only one-harp!), I purchased a SP 20 Country-Tuned C harp and  am
loving it!  Plan to use it on songs like Honky Tonk  Women, Route
66, Pride & Joy, and some other  'non-traditional blues' tunes my
band does that I've been  searching for a better sound on.

Who knew country-tuned wasn't just for country?! Yeeehaaaw!

Thanks List!

'Blues with a feelin, that's what I have today.'

Here's the harp you want. I came up with it in  1959. Took it to
Nashville in 75. From there it went international.  BUT it took
several years. Smokey Joe tuning. The 5th AND 9th draw  reeds are up
one semi tone and there's a wind saver on the 5 draw.  You can do a
whole lot with this tuning. I play jazz with  it.
