The Spring Global Blues Harmonica Summit
Saturday-Sunday April 17th-18th
11am-3pm Central each day
The upcoming online Global Blues Harmonica Summit will feature Carlos del Junco, Hank Shreve, Adam Gussow and Ronnie Shellist. This summit will be hosted over a full weekend, Saturday & Sunday, and the entire event will be recorded. The summit will go from 11am-3pm Central each day. If you cannot make a portion or any of the classes live, you will be able to watch the recording and download it after the event ends. You’ll also receive any and all instructor notes and the class link on the day before the summit begins. Recording links of the event are emailed out the next day.
What will we be teaching? For this summit, I requested that each teacher break down and teach an original composition. You’ll get 4 individual classes, 2 classes per day. We will be learning about these great original instrumentals, solos. etc. Here’s are the songs that will be covered in the summit. Be sure to click the links and have a listen.
- Adam Gussow: “Thunky Fing” is one of Adam’s hit instrumentals and he’s gonna show you just how it’s done. Have a listen.
- Carlos del Junco: Carlos will teach portions of his version of “Mojo”. He will use an A harmonica for some parts but at 4:10 where the drum break is, there’s some amazing harmonica playing that help break down on an E harmonica. Have a listen.
- Hank Shreve: Hank will be covering a 3rd position solo (key of A, G harmonica) from his original song “Light Me Up”. He’ll also use a D harmonica to break down some ideas from the intro of the song. Have a listen.
- Ronnie Shellist: Ronnie Shellist will be teaching you his harp lines from his original composition:”Rumba de la Casa Roja”. It’s in the key of F so you’ll need a Bb harmonica. Have a listen.
This 2 day event is all hosted online via Zoom webinar platform. You’ll join with a simple link that will be sent out to everyone the day before the summit. We hope to see you there!
