    We all talk about great guitar tone, but we rarely talk about great harmonica tone.

    I'll start with Little Walter

    Awesome!
    Our band does a couple of songs with harmonica, and they're fun!

    One day, we can add Paco to this thread. Since Sergio thinks the harmonica is one of the worst musical instruments ever, I HAD to buy a little harmonica for Paco. :p

    Thanks for this one Shawn, it’s reminded me of my Dad playing this one years ago, when I was a kid.

    Thanks for this one JB, I recorded harp on this one about 1996, with the band that I played in at the time.



    I love this song and deeply admire both guys!

    Yeah, thanks for that. :mad::p

    Stevie Wonder or GTFO, in fact, harmonicas should be outlawed for everyone but him.

    My hero! And if he’d just give me his address, I’d send a Kazoo so Paco could be a multi-instrumentalist.

    Don’t forget Rick Estrin, especially with Little Charlie and the Nightcats.

    This shows how versatile the harmonica really is. It can go from a soul stirring Blues harp, to a smoky campfire cowboy song to John Lennon.
