This catalog has no sub-catalogs.

Paul Butterfield, one of the great blues harmonica players of all time, honed his harp and vocal style in the clubs and bars of his native Chicago, learning directly from great bluesmen such as Muddy Waters, Junior Parker, Sonny Boy Williamson and Little Walter.

His first band, The Butterfield Blues Band, was one of the most powerful and influential groups of the sixties and early seventies. Paul has played with just about every great blues and rock performer, appearing on numerous albums, TV shows, and concert stages. He was featured in the film and record of The Band's "Last Waltz," on which he played behind Muddy Waters and Bob Dylan, as well as performing his own powerful solo of "Mystery Train."

On this powerful and important lesson made a few years before his death in 1987, one of the great blues harmonica players of all time teaches the techniques he developed during a lifetime of musical experience.

Paul Butterfield, who honed his harp and vocal style in the clubs and bars of his native Chicago, was known for the purity and intensity of his tone, his sustained breath control, and his unique ability to bend notes to his will. He takes all these elements apart for the learning player, providing rare insights into his approach to his music and his instrument.

You'll learn invaluable playing secrets: good sound production, using the tongue for "choking" and "blocking," reed bending, trills, octaves, the tremolo and tremulant, rhythm playing, phrasing, acoustic versus electric harmonica, mic technique and much more. Paul plays some very soulful harp as he teaches classic blues, spirituals and folk songs, including "Rock Me Baby," "My Babe," "St. James Infirmary," "Nobody's Fault But Mine," "Key to the Highway," "Caress Me Baby" and others.

*Edited version of the three-cassette series, "Blues Harmonica" by Paul Butterfield.
