back in the days on the boulevard of linden

i mean back in the days of listening to music where they rocked harmonicas, i thought about getting one, but just cause it seemed easy to play.

i used to have this guitar, i didn't know any chords or any of that shit, i just plucked the strings and made music. tripped people out when we were high, i'm thinking of picking up some classical chinese instruments where all you do is pluck and things are magical.

harmonica seems like that, you don't really have to know too much, just keep playing til things fit together.

the harmonica ending to Neil Youngs acoustic version of Hey Hey My My is absolutely brilliant.

my dad plays harmonica. he's got shitloads. he's a beast, busts one out all the time and starts playing off the top of the dome, or playing along to a song on the radio, or shit he wrote. some people think it's torture to the ears, i personally love the sound if it's played decent. i never was much good at it, but i had a snoopy jews harp (http://images.marketworks.com/hi/75/75433/snoopy-1.jpg) i was pretty badass on.

there's some tight playing on various pogues albums.

I got a set of the 7 major keys at heartlandamerica.com for $30 ($200 value), in a nice case. The ones I got are a Chicago Blues set. Now I think they have a Soul Man set. They’re obviously not as good as Hohner ($30 each), but are still good. They were recommended to me by my dad’s friend who’s been playing for 30 years. They’re hard plastic, which he said lasts longer than wood. I don’t work for them or anything, I just thought I’d pass along the good deal.
