New Workshop: Legends of the Blues Harmonica: George “Harmonica” Smith, James Cotton, and Junior Wells Blues Harmonica Workshop 5/4-6

David Barrett Admin's picture

Spend three days focused on learning George “Harmonica” Smith's, James Cotton's, and Junior Wells' approach to the diatonic harmonica and post war Chicago blues. In this class I’ll share: well-known recordings from these artists; their importance in history; the key elements to their playing styles; and some of their most famous songs (Telephone Blues, Cotton’s Creeper, Chitlin Con Carne, etc.). The songs I cover I’ll provide transcriptions and the class will be audio recorded for your use after the class. Jam circle Friday night and guitar/harmonica duo performance Saturday night. This class is for lower-intermediate to advanced skill level players (if you’re not sure of your skill level, contact me and we’ll discuss).
