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.
