I posted about blues harmonica wizard Adam Gussow back in March, but this past week I got to meet and have a lesson with him. If you have seen any of his "Adam Gussow's Dirty-South Blues Harp Channel" Youtube videos, you know that he is not only a great musician, but an accessible and effective teacher as well. His Youtube videos have now grown to over 80 with thousands of views for each, and he has his own site www.modernbluesharmonica.com. In addition, his new book, Journeyman's Road: Modern Blues Lives From Faulkner's Mississippi to Post-9/11 New York, has just come out, which I'm looking forward to reading. The in-person lesson was for a small harmonica group in Washington, DC (about 15 people) that was basically 3 hours of the same intensity that his video lessons have. If you are interested in harmonica in any way, start with Adam's channel on Youtube.
