YouTube Harp Lessons (Gussow.155.to.165.zip)
The audio tracks for lessons 155 to 165 of Adam Gussow's groundbreaking series of blues harmonica tutorials at YouTube, in convenient mp3 form. Each lesson is roughly 9-10 minutes long. This particular collection includes a series of duets with Jimi Lee, Brandon Bailey, Ben Bouman, Nat Riddles, and Charlie Hilbert.
Topics covered include: more previews of a new jam tracks collection, showing you how to play with various grooves; "soprano harp," Gussow's pioneering investigation of high-note and overblow playing on the higher-key harps; two lessons set in the Mississippi cottonfields at harvest time, one of which includes a slow harmonica blues in C; rack-harp genius Jimi Lee performing "Mister Magic"; Adam and Jimi Lee dueting on "Coming Home, Baby"; young Memphis star Brandon Bailey and Adam dueting on a two-harp boogie in a live TV performance; Adam and Dutch harp ace Ben Bouman dueting on an E boogie (each players uses three different harps) in Chateauvieux, France; a video on how to play the theme song from "Cadillac Records"; Adam and Charlie Hilbert playing "She Moves Me," a raunchy Muddy Waters blues, in Klingenthal, Germany; a quick-hit "Intro to Blues Harmonica" video for raw beginners; and two videos on the mastery of Adam's teacher, the late Nat Riddles.
Easy to burn onto a CD, if you'd like.
