Excited to be teaching a class at the 2020 virtual October harmonica festival this Thursday 20:15 - 21:30 BST. Awesome lineup including the legendary Charlie McCoy! I'll be teaching how to steal riffs, licks and solo ideas from other instruments other than harmonica from several different genres.

This is a great lesson that a lot of plays could benefit from. We talk a lot about borrowing from different instruments, but we don't often see it demonstrated with examples. For all of that I commend you!
