[Harp-L] Washington Post: The Death of the Electric Guitar

This article points to the impact of changing demographics and tastes on
the electric guitar.  Yes, plenty of people still play electric guitar, and
plenty of records still feature it  But the major manufacturers are on life
support, and trends are not favorable.

The same demographics apply to harmonica too, though this seems to be a
boom period for harmonica manufacturers, with plenty of makers and models
in the game.

I wonder though how much of this article applies to the harp.  Perhaps
others can do the assessment.
