Chicago vs. Jump - This week in my Live Q&A Webinar, I cover one of the most popular topics I get asked about: how to play Jump Blues vs. Chicago Blues on Harmonica. I spent my entire career so far mostly balancing these two styles in my own bands and with others on record and tour. I dissect key factors that help not only identify and differentiate these two popular styles of Blues, but also how to approach them on harmonica. 

Having toured and recorded with my own Jump Blues band (Jump Time) and having studied and performed Chicago Blues intensely, I will uncover some key factors to keep in mind not only as a harmonica player, but as a musician. If you not only want to know these styles better but also what goes into a more horn-like sound and approach that I have worked on for years PLUS how to really not sound like every other harp player when you play a jump or swing groove, this is for YOU!

WHY? With no work or performances for any of us musicians, I've decided to start a series of LIVE online Q&A Sessions with some of the BEST and most knowledgable players and technicians in the Blues and Harmonica World!! Registration is LIMITED and open to anyone willing to make a donation.

HOW? These will be EXCLUSIVE to BadAss Harmonica with a link, and will NOT be streaming on social media. Donations of varying amounts are possible through the links above and below (to help make these available for everyone), keeping in mind this is going directly to the musicians and the ONLY way for most of us to generate some income right now. Normally a seminar like this would be $50 and up, however I want to keep these going on a regular basis and with the best guests that are available!
