I just wish I was learning blues harp now,rather than a few decades ago – there are now a number of excellent teachers who are willing to share their hard earned experience with you.
Take the opportunity and try some today.
You will have to try a few, as each has their own approach which suits some better than others. Also you may concentrate on a tune or player and use that to try out some of the online tutors.
First choice has to be Adam as he has led the explosion in blues harp teaching on the net. He has been generous and his tips come from study, analysis and much hard experience on the streets.
He is also a writer and researcher:
I like Tomlin’s approach – he never blinds you with his playing,and never talks down to you. His approach is straight forward and clear. He keeps on improving his teaching.
Good player,but sometimes he assumes you may know more than you do.
Another good player,but sometimes you think he is ‘winging’ the lesson,although I am sure he is well prepared.
Ronnie also coordinates the Global Blues Summit, which is an online event webinar.
There are many others –Jerry Portnoy, JP Allen, Paul Lamb,, Hakan Ehn, Jon Gindick, Jason Ricci, Annie Raines -explore and you will find one or two that suit you best.
Some are just good players and less than good teachers, but each one to her/his own!
