I do play regularly, even some days when I'd rather do something else.
I've been playing four years as an adult and benefit from a seasonal group lesson schedule, so I'm a beginner en route. I played as a kid, too, maybe more so than the average kid. I had Oh Susannah! and Red River Valley down pretty good before Mrs. Baer's fourth grade class.
My goal is to learn to play the diatonic harmonica (and chromatic when I have more time to learn) and guitar in order to build a good song list of country and blues songs on the harp and guitar to allow me to jam regularly with friends without endless repetition. I look at the process as open-ended.

Hello, it feels great to make friends with other folks that play the harmonica. This little instrument is deceptively simple and amazingly complex. I once read a quote: "Half the world plays the harmonica and the other half wishes it could."
5 star group- lots of talent and a great foundation for building skills and meeting more harp players. We know where we want to go and we are going to get there!
