This week I've been listening to some blues records, starting with Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Robert Johnson and Son House. All of those are great. But today I happened to listen to Sonny Boy Williamson! What is so special with him is that he is very good at playing blues harp. He's the best I've heard yet, but I haven't heard much yet. I've played harmonica for almost a year, but I've only been inspired by Bob Dylan. That has been a big mistake... I haven't even learned to play that cross-harp style that's used when playing the blues. But now I will start to listen those great harp players. If you know any great harp player(s), feel free to comment here and make suggestions. I appreciate that.
Here's some Sonny Boy Williamson for ya. Sonny Boy Williamson – His Best
I think it's a great compilation. You really hear how great he plays the harp; better than Bob Dylan.
