I hear sharpharp can make the knees of anyone with a sexual preference buckle as soon as they hear the sounds of their advanced OOTB Hohner Blues pro harp MS overblows

sharpharp is so good. he is so good that the earth stops spinning and the ghost of coltrane arises to say that he had it all wrong.

He is the only guy I know that can play in 13th position. This means that he can play a C harmonica in the key of C, but all of the notes are an octave higher than what they normally are.

I haven't signed into this forum in 5 years. The other day I finally decided to post a question. I was really hesitant at first and kept searching the net for an answer so I wouldn't have to get back into forums. But while browsing through the forum I came across a post by "sharpharp" and that was the clincher. Without missing a beat I signed in. I was like, "wow...sharpharp is a member here?" I've heard so much about him. Actually I wasn't even sure if he was real! A legend. I heard he's the best.

Marc mentioned his playing in 13th position. I heard he has a specially made amp that he plays through that the volume goes to 11. That really gives his harp some real crunch.

sharpharp is anyone we want him to be. He is bigger than we can imagine, better than we can hope, and badder than Leroy Brown. That is his true genius.

I took a lesson from sharpharp once. With my newfound skills, I went to the Newport Blues Festival. Muddy Waters wanted me to sit in, but Little Walter said he could never follow my act, so I sat out. I was four years old.

There's no need to be rude.
I can't help the level of talent I was born with
its been bad enough being this good looking all my life and don't mock 13th position cause I nailed it.

sharpharp stepped on superman's cape and superman apologized. his version of whammer jammer changes the course of mighty rivers. he played the entire butterfield catalog in 52nd position on a puck harmonica. space aliens heard his jams on a nasa space probe and invaded earth just to hear more of his jams.His lowest note on his g harmonica made chuck norris' knees buckle.

Does he TB or LB or other? What mic and amp does he use? What's his favourite make and model of harp?

Which part of his body does he use to bend?

Dunno, but I heard that when he drives a car he doesn't have to steer. He just holds the stick

sharpharp is clearly the reincarnated (harmonica) Buddha. He is 6 years old and can underbend his overbends.

Two things.

1. I knew Leroy Brown. One of the nicest guys ever. He was a bad ass and a fine singer.

2. He isn't real good. He is The Best. Think Bruce Willis, but even better. Men get a boner, when sharpharp plays his Hohner.

To answer MTG's questions: TB or LP? Science has determined that sharpharp's tongue is in a quantum superposition of tongue blocking and lip pursing. The probabilities of the tongue being in either state are described by the M. Davis sonic field equations.

This allows sharpharp to play notes that are only approximately described as sound wave frequencies.

Sharpharp interrupted a Howard Levy lecture on hypermodal jazz to poo-poo the chromatic scale as too linear. He briefly demonstrated his n-dimensional Cantorian infinity scales. It was so mind-blowing, the whole auditorium was sent off for psychiatric evaluation.

Sharpharp doesn't need no steenking mic! Amps are for sissies! His acoustic tone can drown out a 2000 W PA system. His harmonica is considered a national defense system like NORAD. The reeds are Warthog A10 turbine blades.

a very well respected harmonica master once told me confidentially,

that he has never in his life heard someone play with such light breath force…. Ever.

he honestly said, and I quote

“ I will need to go back to the woodshed” and relearn all over"

I can’t believe after all this time I play way too hard.

Indeed 1847. His breathforce is so light, much of his playing can't be heard. Roadies often stick a mirror under his nose to see if he is alive. Barbecue Bob has wept at even the mere mention of his name.

I heard that Sharp Harp was seriously considering a conversion to Buddhism - until he realised he couldn't be reincarnated as himself.

His vibrato is so powerful suspension bridges collapse.

"When Sharp Harp goes swimming he doesn't get wet the water gets sharp harped."

Moon Cat, just because he misspelled your name 'Richie' in that one thread doesn't mean you can misspell his. It's sharpharp. He's so famous he only uses one name! :)

(Just kidding. He released a lot of his 'middle period' work under 'Sharp Harp', so he could prove to himself that he could prove that he wasn't just coasting on his reputation. You are one of the only people who noticed the obvious, that sharpharp and Sharp Harp are the same person! Of course, that should have been obvious. One person being alive with that much talent? Rare, but possible... two people? Not a chance. That would be like Da Vinci and Einstein being born in the same town, on the same day, in houses across the street from each other!)

When Moses went up Mt. Sinai to receive the 10 Commandments, sharpharp, playing his harmonica, was coming down the same path.

His expressiveness on the harp is so groundbreaking the Woodstock 50th Anniversary celebration committee has signed him to play The Star Spangled Banner.
