Although he's obviously revered as a Chicago blues master, Junior Wells often slips just below the radar when harp players invoke their list of influences. That's too bad, because a close study of his harp work on this particular track makes clear just what an original and challenging harp voice he actually had. This tutorial will help you get a handle on various touchstones of Wells's style: carefully sculpted and vibratoed blue notes, a range of coughs and cut-off notes that contribute materially to his instrumental power, and an uncanny ability to use the space BETWEEN note clusters as a way of sculpting a blues statement.
Technical challenges include everything just described, plus some fast sixteenth-note runs that will require most players to slow the track by 20 percent, as Gussow does in this lesson.
Harp key: F
Note: a 3-page PDF tab for this lesson is also available.
