Harmonica Almanac – September 6
Blues singer, guitar and harmonica player Jimmy Reed was born on this day in 1925. Reed usually played the harmonica on a neck brace and had a very distinctive style, concentrating on high-end blow bends for his leads.
Classical harmonica player Robert Bonfiglio began by playing the diatonic harmonica, playing in Blues bands in his youth. He then went on to study with Cham-Ber Huang and get advanced degrees in music. Robert was born on this day in 1956.
That’s it for today. Have fun and practice!
