The harmonica is the answer. Want to lose weight? Play the harmonica. Dry, chapped skin? You need a harmonica. Broke down and brokenhearted? Let's play the blues. I believe this so passionately that I’ve written a book about it called How to Play the Harmonica, available from Gibbs Smith Publisher this September, 2009.
Today’s harmonica moment is dedicated to harmonica wizard Lee Oskar, who is appearing with the Lowrider Band on West Coast Live (www.wcl.org) this morning. Lee played with the band War and his name graces a very fine line of harmonicas made by Tombo. Check it out.
