Harmonica Notes Greats: Bob Dylan

I admit it, I tried to not talk about Bob Dylan but I just can’t help it. If you play the harmonica, you will eventually learn a Dylan song. Now, I am a blues man myself but Dylans impact on the world of harmonicas can’t be denied.

I dressed like Elwood the other day for a Halloween party, I had my B flat and everything and what was the first thing someone asked me after they found out I am learning the harp? “Hey can you play Tambourine Man?”

Grumble, grunt, groan. Yup, He is a Harmonica great.

Harmonicas Greats: Junior Wells


 

You can’t take two steps into the world of the blues harmonica without running into the name Junior Wells. His album Hoodoo Man Blues is considered required listening in the blues harmonica world. He’s played with Muddy Waters, The Rolling Stones and Van Morrison. Take a listen to him and tell me he doesn’t deserve to be considered one of the greats.
