NOTE: If you'd like to be a member of this forum, please register.  Please register ONLY ONCE.  You will get an automated response saying your application has been accepted, but since we hand approve each application to fight spam, you won't be able to log in right away.  You will receive a second email telling you that you have been approved within 24-48 hours.  If you don't hear from us after that, contact membership on the contact page. 

This is a lightly moderated forum in which registered members may freely exchange thoughts, tips, and useful insights about any and all topics related to blues harmonica--including the harmonica and the blues more generally.  (The occasional off-topic thread is OK, and should be marked "OT," but please be sparing in this regard.)  Beginners welcome!  You do not need to play the harmonica well to contribute to the dialogue.  This forum values the wisdom of novices and old-timers alike.  

A quick word about board etiquette:  the phrase "freely exchange" above carries with it a burden of responsibility.  Please assume that your fellow board members are well-intentioned.  Treat them civilly.  The golden rule is a good guide.  We come here to share information, conspire with like-minded others, educate ourselves, cheer each other on, and maybe help each other deal skillfully with the rough changes that the blues-focused life can sometimes put us through.  Vigorous, passionate conversation is fine.  Disagree emphatically, if you wish, with the opinions others express here.  But please refrain from flaming, insulting, or otherwise impugning the looks, parentage, intelligence, or good intentions of your fellow board members, or from starting threads that seek to encourage that sort of behavior.  Religion is one topic where we have, unfortunately, proven our inability to remain civil or respect each other's differences.  Accordingly, threads containing the word "religion" or variants on that word, and/or threads devoted explicitly to discussions of religion are BANNED FROM THIS FORUM until further notice.

Please also note:  although conversation about blues harmonica and related issues should be free and spirited, this forum isn't a men's locker room.  Casual (or intentional) ethnic or racial slurs, anti-gay rants, nationalist cant, pointed and sustained use of four-letter words--including ANY such language directed at another forum member--and/or misogynist slurs are prohibited.  Some of us are black.  Some of us are white.  Some of us are Asian.  Some of us are mixed.  Some of us hail from countries other than America, or have family who do.  Some of us are interracially married.  Some of us are gay.  All of us share a love for blues harmonica.  We come here in that spirit.  We strive, no matter how passionately and forcefully we disagree, to remain civil.  This forum has a one-warning rule for those who violate this creed.  On rare occasions, in the case of egregious and/or repeat violations, miscreants will be suspended or banished from the forum  (The moderators and I will be the final arbiters of such violations.)

Members are free to post relevant videos here, including videos of their own performances.  If you post a video of yourself and ask people what they think, please be prepared to listen to the answers.  (The answers, of course, must remain civil.  "You suck" is not a civil answer.  "Doesn't do anything for me" IS a civil answer.)

Please don't be evil.

As Big Walter once said, Have a good time!
