Nobody Knows You............With Lilmom


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Right,I heard this from Lilmom a lil while ago (see what I did there?....oh please yourselves then)and really enjoyed it.Then I heard awigze lay down some Sax and thouht that was great. So I tried to put some guitar over Lilmoms track......and then....oh dear,having bought a harmonica last week and a tuition book which was ......umm pants in the tune department....Jingle Bells does not a blues harpist make ! ( Yes I know! Learn the basics first and then proceed etc )Anyway ,long story short,I used Lilmom and my guit track to play along to when 'Yellow Rose of Texas' and 'Twinkle twinkle Lil Star' (see what I di'....nevermind) become life threateningly tedious. The harmonica is a little tentative at first,and I have to say that it is not Larry Adler or Terraplane Standard,but I am quite pleased with it for only a weeks worth of practise.All feedback gratefully received and we will have a banjo and mouth organ recital shortly" Als Sprach Zarasthusa " I think......or "Turkey In The Straw".

I do not
believe how quickly the harmonica came to life,I got two,an A and a D...got home opened up the new tutor book and it said "to play along to the tunes on the CD you need a C harp"......so I went "Doh !!" Back to the shop and one C harp later. But it just seems to make sense and I have no idea why I have taken to it so quickly....perhaps 'cos it don't have strings to fumble fingerr and because I have always played air Harp !! Thanks for the drop by.....still cannot get pointless picks over here....but lots of strange looks from music shop assistants....

but they will now! I'm amazed at how quickly you learn these new instruments when you decide to. WOW! Just one week!?! Wonderful! And I'm so happy that you chose my music to display this new talent. BIG smiles from Florida!!!

Mr. Courageous,
that's what I'm going to tag you with from now on, Chris.

Love how you get a new instrument of some kind and a week later you throw up a track and it always sound great.

It this one is, my friend.

Ed,thanks for
the encouragement and I am going to say with no false modesty that this has been an amazing learning curve....there was no stumbling around or any hesitation ...the instrument just seemed to play itself straight from the box........of course now I am half expecting some big dude with a contract to turn up at the end of my street .....which is a crossroads!!lol

Larry Adler!
Thanks for remembering him Chris. Well, there has never been another Larry Adler but you acquitted yourself most excellent on that ol' harmonica (I need to look into getting one of those deals!). Your guitar work added greatly too---this is instantly one of my favorites from you. Thanks again!

Nobody Knows You............With Lilmom
That sounds like way more than a week's worth of progress on the harp. I like the Scotty Moore guitar licks.

I Kid you not....
I was playing almost straight from taking the darn thing out of its box....there is nobody more gobsmacked than I at the rate of progress.....even the mrs appreciates it....and that is a result in anybodies book !

A mere seven days...
I think it is almost spooky, but I love it ! The beauty of a harp is that you can carry it anywhere and have a sneaky practise at any time ,so that has helped .

Your harmonica sounds real pretty. You practiced for this by playing Also Sprach Zarathustra. See, that explains it. Nicely done, Chris. Thanks. :)

Nice smooth backer. Some nice laid back guitar licks, and the harp sounds really good. That you only had one week of practice is amazing.

Really cool additions here to lilmom's great track. Fits together so well together, hard to tell what was added when. Reminds me of a theme for a TV show or something. Excellent!

Thanks mo
I am astonished at the development myself....for a coupla months many ( 30 PLUS) years ago I found an old chromatic harmonica of my Dad's and worked out that if you blew and sucked that you got different notes and managed to blow a few hesitant tunes but then put it aside.

Nothing like I have learned in the last week ! I love the sound so that maybe why........no questions asked.Thanks Maurice

Thanks,that means

I absolutely love it and even play it in the bath...well one of them...I got a bitdistressedwhen the lad in theshop said that you have to play ,orhave more than one....I thoght hell me gobs not that big!! Then he explained quietly about the different keys and cross harp technique and so I bought three....A,D and C....ant advice or tips gratefully received.i want to develop this little bugger.

Cheers Chris.
