Jess and Arnold

I felt the same way, what do you mean put it to your mouth and make music. Until I ran across Andy on youtube. He has so much to offer on his channel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRWZ1mO-vnI&NR=1 is his first of over 300 video and then you can go to the discussion I started called "Instant Naked Raw Brutal Blues Harmonica - your first lesson" it'l get you going right away. So post vids of your progress and let us all know how you are doing...

Hi Mark:

Thanks for doing this.  I've always wanted to play a harp, but I don't know where to begin . . . ya, I know, start blowing . . . but, really, I do want to learn.  So, where do I go from here . . . lessons, video, etc.?    Jess
