Re: [Harp-L] Paul Butterfield

You can add many players to the list of "backwards" harmonica players, including Kenny Neal, his father Raful Neal and his teacher, Slim Harpo. I asked Kenny why he played "backwards", and he told me it was because that's how he was taught by Slim. There appears to be no particular advantage or disadvantage either way.

This method of playing has been used by any number of harp players, not all of whom are well known. However, the names William Clarke, Jerry McCain, Wayne Raney, and Charles "Good Rocking" Edwards are among those who gained some measure of fame by playing this way. They are likely not alone.
