ALL LEVELS: BEGINNER through ADVANCED INTERMEDIATE. A QuickTime video tutorial by Adam Gussow (of Satan and Adam) that helps you diagnose and correct a series of problems that the great majority of blues harp players confront in their quest to develop a large, clear, strong sound.

Embouchure, articulation, the variables that govern the shape of the resonating cavity inside your mouth, and of course vibrato: these are some of the issues Gussow addresses. Many players, as Gussow observes, are trapped into over-busy playing by their unconscious desire to keep time on the harmonica; Gussow shows you how to keep time elsewhere, freeing up the harp to play soaring longer notes with superior tone.

Note: unlike most lessons from Modern Blues Harmonica, this lesson does NOT have an accompanying tab sheet.

Adam. This is what I have been missing. The section on Vibrato answered a lot of my questions. I could not figure out how to get that warm full vibrato.

The other parts were very helpful as well. I sometimes would get a flat thin tone. Other times it would be fine. I now know that my harmonica isn�t broke. It was the operator.

I have lots of new techniques to practice. I would highly recommend this lesson to anyone trying to improve their tone.

Thanks for putting it all out there.

I have purchased several of Adam�s videos and this one has been the best and most helpful so far. Primarily, this is because this video is much more comprehensive than the others I�ve purchased. I would recommend this video if you are past the very beginning stage of learning-which is where I am:) I�ve listened to this video many times, and find myself going back to it often to remind me of some of the concepts. Well worth the few dollars.

I now know I fall into the advanced intermediate category and as such, there was a lot in this video that I had under control, though i can�t recommend it enough to beginners who need to focus on tone before worrying about speed and licks IMO.

On the other hand, the last minute or so of Adam�s ideas about throat vibrato were gems that I haven�t read or heard from anyone else and more than worth the price of this video!
