Let me introduce myself

Hi, my name is Jimmy. I am helping Erik (aka, Mudcat) to fix his site, and get everything back online and running.

Over the next few weeks, you will be seeing a lot of changes to the site. Right now, I am restoring the archives. Fixing broken links, bad videos, and so on. There will be a full redesign of the site, optimized for mobile devices. I am also going over old comments, getting ideas for new posts, videos and so on. Look forward to a new video in the next week or so.

We are planning a lot of new content. Expanding our social media reach. Even a NEW 30 Day Harmonica Challenge in the planning stages.

We appreciate the visits, and we are excited at restarting a great project.


Learn Harmonica Advice From Bill Johnston

BillJohnston 300x223 Learn Harmonica Advice From Bill JohnstonI met Bill Johnston On Sunday February 28th at the KNON blues Show at The Pearl in downtown Dallas. He was opening for Johnnie Red and The Roosters. It was a benefit to support KNON a nonprofit radio station in Dallas and the best place to hear blues on a regular basis. I’m working on a post about the benefit and I have an Interview with Johnnie Red on the way as well. If you want to hear what Bill Johnston sounds like, there is a link to his Myspace and his band “The Tu-Tones” at the bottom of the article.

Bill Played with Aarron Burton That Sunday Evening. They played some Old style southern blues. They amplified but didn’t distort much if at all. Aarron played some side, did some finger picking and played an acoustic and a Resonator. (I’m thinking about picking up a Resonator). I’m starting to call it restoration blues because it really digs into the roots of Delta blues. It was a great show.

Bill took a few minutes out to talk to me about playing Blues Harmonica. Enjoy the video.
