Although several blues harp legends, including Little Walter and Magic Dick, have freely adapted melodic ideas and techniques from sax players, more contemporary players would benefit from moving in this direction. When sax-men play the blues, they invariably phrase in ways that can broaden blues harp students willing to step outside the comfortable boundaries of today's prevailing Chicago/West Coast sound. "Sugar Ditch" is a great first step in this direction.
Technical challenges include unexpected phrasing and some harmonic adventurousness in bars 9 & 10. 2, 3, and 4 draw bends are required. NO OVERBLOWS NEEDED!
