I got an ECHO tremolo harmonica for Christmas when I was about ten. Playing Christmas or folk songs on it was all right, but  music by John Mayall or Canned Heat was more to my liking. So I got a Marine Band and made my fist excursions into Blues on the harp. 40 years later I rediscovered the instrument and became more serious about learning. Another ten years on, the close connection between the instrument and particularly the Blues that Michael rightly points out, intrigued me to write my recently published book „Monika’s Blues.“
