    This is a great publication for beginners, but there are a couple of note errors, as well as a failing to describe a particular technique: tongue rolling; which is still driving me insane! Aside from this, it is a fabulous publication for getting to know the harp and picking up...

    This is the only book I have about the blues harp. In my view it was one of the best in the shop for price/layout/content. The book cost me £10 and has proved good value.The pages are smart and un cluttered.The text and notation/tab are...

The CD is very well put together with high quality production and a seemingly endless collection of riffs and tunes. There are a couple of single note errors as far as I can tell, but these are just draw notes instead of blows and are not a problem. I would have liked more info. on the note bending technique though, I will have to suffer for several more hours before I nail that one. I would recommend this book to any beginner as excellent value and great fun.
