Re: [Harp-L] SPAH and me

LOL, what smo-joe says is so sadly true. My enjoyment comes after being disrespected by a piano or guitar player, which in my case is usually some small town clown who never made it out of the poverty stricken locale that we live in, and the crowd after I sit down after hitting the one song they let me sit in on starts asking for "more harmonica".George

 You answered your question big Rick. Most harp players don't have a solo repertoire. Also, over my life time I have noticed something.
I play or have played other instruments. Most musicians have total disregard for harmonica players. No respect. Sorry, but that's the
way I see it. I have been shoveling the proverbial sh*t against the proverbial tide for what seems like eons. Sometimes I win. Sometimes
I loose. :)
