  • CHICAGO BLUES HARMONICA – I will talk about what makes Chicago Blues harp playing “Chicago Blues Harp Playing”. Topics will include rhythm playing, tongue-blocking techniques of the Chicago masters, phrasing, and scales.
  • JUMP BLUES HARMONICA – I will next talk about playing “Jump Blues”, and how it differs from the traditional way of playing blues with a more “Chicago” style approach. I will speak of my own personal approach including how it relates on the harmonica which will include techniques used, phrasing, scales, and more.
