[Harp-L] What first attracted you to harmonica? Why did you learn to play it?

I heard Paul Butterfield for the first time in 1967, when I was 15 years
old, and I was immediately and completely knocked out by that white-hot
sound.  I bought my first harmonica within a few weeks and struggled with
it without much success for six months. Then I bought a copy of Tony
Glover's "Blues Harp," which told me what I'd been doing wrong, and things
got a lot better for me quickly.  By then it was pretty clear that harp was
going to be a big part of my identity and my life.
