Do you currently play the harmonica?

I do play regularly, even some days when I'd rather do something else.

Beginner, intermediate or advanced player?

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.

Describe your musical interests and/or goals

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.

Do you play any other musical instrument?

Taylor 312 Lefty, Seagull S6 lefty Acoustic Guitars. Martin SP Light Strings.

Introduction

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."

What Patrick K. is saying about this Meetup Group

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!
