Played in the car for years with only an old marine band. Wife finally bought me set of six nice harps. A buddy of mine who is singer/songwriter and a good one had me play with him one night and now we do it on a regular basis at a local club. If I was embarrassing him I guess he wouldn't have me up there. "Big Boss Man" was the first one I ever played on stage. We do "Baby what you want me to do" " Bring it on home to me" and some other old blues as well as some Buffet and Dylan where I play same key and jut fill in the gaps mostly. Couldn't be any more fun. Best part bout my harp playing is it keeps me from singing. You an check my buddy on youtube. Ron Kimble.

The first thing I played was a Silvertone electric guitar from Sears & Roebuck back in 1956 (I was 10 years old then). Loved to listen to Elvis, Jimmy Reed, any blues player, etc... Now (58 years later), I play about everything on a guitar (bass too!). You can hear my playing and songs at www.ReverbNation.com/genedee

That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!

Amazing, I too first learned from playing along with Jimmy Reed. Then Chuck. Little Richard, Elvis, Freddi King, Albert King.

My first guitar was a Silvertone copper colored from Sears, amp too was Silvertone.

That was over 50 years ago. I'm still at it.
