There is no other instrument that can soar so high and tear so utterly the human soul. A close second is the violin, but it will always be its own. A slide guitar can break and cut, but maybe because the harmonica is an extension of a human voice it is given that extra bit of soul which can never be replicated. No, the harmonica is the one sound I will always have. Until I breathe my last (though to be honest at the end I am sure I will say something disgusting that everyone will agree should be taken off the record) I will sing a song for harmonicas. Real played ones not that Bob Dylan huff and puff.
|It was fun but it's not giving me much freedom as a harmonica player! You understand right? Right?|
As you may know I am real close to finishing an album with which I hope to lure in a excellent band who can both push me and provide me freedom to play harmonica unencumbered by guitar. I need to stand on a stage with the music playing so I can get the songs inside me outside me, Harmonica is very difficult, and unless you have a good band, its better to just stick with guitar. OK, that's enough. The whole reason I posted was I wanted you to hear some real harmonica playing in the video at the bottom of the page.
