Re: [Harp-L] Butterfield complete box set

Paul was criticized by some for not tongue blocking, but this video by Levon Helm demonstrates what appears to be a variation of U-blocking


If anyone has listened to the Homespun release of the Paul Butterfield lessons, there is really not much indication of Paul's technique. The lessons first came out on audio cassette than CD and a book. And I love just about everything -- harmonica and guitar and piano -- that homespun has put over the years. They have some of best quality and enlightening instructional material going. But the Butterfield is a curiosity.
