Woohoo, The Harp!
 
I'm finally going to learn to play the Harp once and for all,

The harp was the first musical instrument I'm ok on the guitar and I have ok timing but I wanted to play the harp for so long,

I've picked out and learned 3 songs on it, The song's are Muddy Waters Mannish Boy, Hot Cross Buns & Marry had a little lamb, However I wanted to learn the campfire song's and play blues harp,

I will finally get my chance in the winter time to do just that when I will only have 1 class instead of 2-3 classes to deal with!

Harmonica, the 10 holed metal thing that looks like a big candy bar :)



But this one you can't eat!

Then, one would call it a mouth harp or harmonica. The harp is a completely different instrument, and there are a couple of kinds of those, too.

Thanks Wyogal,

However about %90 percent of the blues guys including me call it the Harp or the Blues Harp! even Paul Butterfield calls it the Blues harp, harp fyi.

When you are in that context, yes. but when in a completely unrelated context, it would be best if you called it what it is. Otherwise folks are thinking you might mean the stringed instrument. FYI and yes, BLUES harp helps to identify it.

No problem Wyogol, Sounds like you know a lot about music in general?

Wyogal 08-01-2009 12:12 PM

ah, yes.
and not just generally.

That's pretty cool, I should have stated in my first post that I've found a teacher so he can teach me how to play the blues harp, Harmonica.

By the way Wyogal What instrument do you play?


And how is everyone doing from the camping trip?

Wyogal 08-01-2009 12:21 PM

I'm a classically trained violinist, play many different styles. I also play the viola , piano, and guitar. I love music history, and world music. I have a Bachelor of Music, as well as a Master's degree in music.
Everyone is home from their trip, doing well.
