all the people who wanted to hear it dry.
*** 3/23/08 *** The
in Clarksdale, Miss. was a blast. I was there as a coach instead
student this time and I worked with some wonderful people. It is
always great seeing the leaps and bounds that are made by the students
as the week progresses. It was held at the Hopson Commissary
the crossroads of 49 and 61. It is on the same grounds as the Shack Up Inn
which is the way to stay in the delta if you are headed that way.
interesting thing to see there is the original Bluesmobile. Dan
retired his Bluesmobile there after it spent some time at a House of
Blues. The owner of the commissary, James, was nice enough to
wife, son and me for a ride around the compound in it. My son is
old and loves the Blues Brothers so he was as excited as ever.
Gindick put a great camp together that had a live band daily to jam
with as well as some of the best coaches around to help you get to your
next level. If you ever get time to spend at a Gindick Jam Camp I
really recommend that you make one. I will be coaching at the
Beach Jam Camp Oct. 30th - Nov 2 if you want to come hang out and have
a great time learning by the beach. Here are some pics from
Brian and Billy Gibson

Some more news coming your way today. Jon Gindick just got with
me to let me know about the jam camp in Dallas they recently
added. It is 4 Days in Dallas, Texas April
23-26, 2008 w/
Jon, Jimi Lee, Cheryl Arena, Gerl Welsh, Paul Harrington and daily
jamming with Hash Brown Blues Band.
I know I am always talking about Jon's Harmonica Jam Camps here
but it is for good reason. When I first started going to Jon's
camps I was a definite beginner. I remember Jon sitting in the
hall with me, giving me one on one time, trying to get me to articulate
those notes and make my tone more pronounced. I have come a
long way since then and attended many more camps since then.
Besides Jon, who is an affable harmonica virtuoso and teacher you will
find a staff
of great players / teachers who are all masters in their own right and
can teach within all levels. It is a comfortable,
non-competetive enviorment full of harp players all eager to learn and
share. You will make lifelong friends there and get to your
Every player I have recommended the camp to has thanked me afterwards
and gotten drastically better almost instantly. The ability to
personalized attention from a professional who can fine tune the skills
you have as well as help you figure out what you need to get to the
next level is invaluable. I will be at the Jam Camp in Clarksdale
Mississippi coming up and I am sure I will be at many more to
yourself a favor and try to make one of these camps. You'll be

It has been a very busy week. I got to see the Nighthawks this week in
Gainesville at the 1982 club. I will be on my way to Clarksville,
Miss. for the Gindick Jam Camp
there in a couple of weeks. It is sure to be a blast. If
you have never been to a Gindick Jam Camp I highly recommend
them. There is some great talent there and you will learn a
lot. On another note a clip has popped up on Youtube of Jason Ricci playing the
first party is acoustic and the second part is amplified through the
