A bunch of years ago, on Public Access TV in NYC, I saw some old live footage of an electric blues guitarist playing with singer/harmonica player. A couple of times, the guitarist would play a solo, and in the middle of it, the singer would stop him by placing his hands on the guitar strings. It was amazing. I was thinking that in might be Buddy Guy and Junior Wells, but I'm not sure. Does anyone know who it was and where I can see that footage again?

About ten years ago, I heard a song by Little Walter
that blew me away and I'm trying to find it again.
The thing that sticks out most distinctly in my mind was a moment in the harmonica solo when he blows the harp so hard that something cataclysmic happens to the amplifier/speaker. It's a terrific wail, almost a painful shriek, and I would love to find that song again so I can hear that moment one more time.
Any ideas what the song might be? [more inside]

I'm trying to make a blues harp "inspiration" mix-tape as a gift for some new players. They only have a C harp, so I'm trying to find songs in either G or C for them to play along with.

HarmonicaFilter: I was just given a harmonica as a gift, but I can't even read music, and have never played an instrument before. Instead of selling the harmonica on eBay, I would really like to learn to play the instrument. Any tips, helpful hints or resources (free is best) are much appreciated.

What do I need to know about buying a harmonica? Would a chromatic harmonica be too difficult for a beginner, or am I going to have to buy a few diatonic harmonicas? I want to use it to just jam around in the style of alt-country and the like. [more inside]

I've just acquired a harmonica and would like to learn some tunes. Any suggestions? I know how to read music, if that helps, and my harmonica is in C.
