What Did You Miss This Week? (Week 304 #348)

Rapid Recall!!!

Joe got back to the Rapid Recall process last night, discussing nuances of the licks on page #2 and answering bending questions. Keep at this practice technique and bring your questions to class! You can't win if you don't play!

Billy Branch!!!

The legendary Billy Branch is in class with us next week, playing and answering questions. If you're in the Chicago area, come join us! All of Joe's current students are welcome but so are other Billy Branch harp playing fans. Come learn from Billy at 8:00pm next Monday.

Class Notes

  • Kudos to the Muscovy Ducks for storming Louisiana! They performed admirably and had a great time!

  • The Chicago Blues Harp Bash is being discussed now. There will be changes this year. It will likely be shorter overall and Shoji has agreed to be music director, hiring the band, arranging rehearsals and generally seeing to a professional level show. If you have constructive comments to share with Joe about making the Bash better than ever, now is the time to speak up.
