Well, Delta cancelled my flight today so I missed the Blues Blow-Off in San Antonio….

I spent the time instead finishing up a music video of a heavy metal song prominently featuring the new slider bass harmonica.


As you likely already know, the slider bass is one of Brendan Powers’ new creations. I acquired mine through George Miklas who assembles them from Brendan’s parts here in the US.

Check it out:

This Friday at SPAH, from 3:30-5pm, George will be presenting on this amazing new instrument. I am a huge fan (of both George and the slider bass) so I’d encourage you to check them out!

Anyway, enjoy the video!

(and maybe I’ll make it to SPAH tomorrow: fingers crossed!)
