Re: [Harp-L] SPAH and me

BUSTED - it's the old "Sure, Rosco -it's easy to complain - now what do you
want to do about it?" Answer: I don't know! And I'm not actually getting my
point across very well... it's not that I missed singers and vocals - it's
that I miss integrating harp into bands with vocals and other more common
instruments outside of strictly Blues...and then playing songs -maybe even
songs that you've never heard before-  in a way that adds to the experience
of the listener and bandmates.
