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. I've listed the tracks I'll be stealing them from below, and the key of harp you'll need. To register visit: www.harmonicauk.com/festival

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!
