What Did You Miss This Week? (Week 298 #342)

Rapid Recall!!!

We had a good conversation in class about peoples' experience using the Rapid Recall tracks and also had someone give it a try in class. It is amazing how quickly change happens!

Joe made the point too that although this is a means for working on a given technique, it is really a disguise for improving your listening skills. You can't play it if you don't hear it!

(To get download instructions for Rapid Recall practice tracks, email Al Taylor.)

Pocket Full of Soul!!!

Coming soon to a theater near you! Joe's been working with the producers of the harmonica documentary film, Pocket Full of Soul, filmed in part in our own B1, and there is a screening planned for the Chicago area February 28. See all your favorite harp players on the big screen.

Please note that this screening will only occur if enough people reserve tickets in advance, so CLICK HERE AND SIGN UP!
