RE: [Harp-L] BLUEgrass

I loved Kentucky Waltz... that is the style of harp I have been trying to do. Note I said "Trying". I want to take a little blues, a little Charlie McCoy and mix in a little of me and use it for country/bluegrass music. Sometimes it works better than others. Right now I'm experimenting with country tuning and with Brendan's Powerbender.
Last Sunday I was at a little musical gathering with a jam circle and the singer/guitarist nodded at me and said "help me out" and took off with Milk Cow Blues.... I had tried to learn that a few years ago off a Mike Caldwell tape.. darned if that didn't pop out of me and it turned out pretty well. I guess you never know what might happen if you just keep playing.

Steve Webb in Minn... where the temp is headed into the minus 20s in the next 24-48 hours.

Hey Bob, thanks for listening. I, like many on this list love to play blues
and spent a good decade and a half playing amplified "Chicago Style",
chasing that holy grail of tone - and had a great fun doing it. As a teen I
started playing old time fiddle music, folk and social music on the short
harp and have now come full circle. What's cool is that I get to bring my
Chicago chops to this acoustic music and in the case of artists like Bill
Monroe there's lots of blues in his grass. If you're curious to hear what I
mean check out our version of Kentucky Waltz on our YouTube site and you'll
hear a straight up blues solo over that classic bluegrass standard. Come to
think of it, there's not too many blues waltzes, hm?
