Welcome to Rick Beall's HarmonicaBoogie.com.
This is Jam 32
The February 2017 jam has started!
The Jam runs from February to July 9, 2017. We have been running this jam online since 2001, for 16 years. It is rather amazing when you think about it. You can see a history fo the jam in the help files. I look at it once in a while myself.
Well, at any rate, the way the jam works is some folks write backing tracks, the players download and play to them. The player uploads the track with harmonica, and then everyone listens, votes and comments.
This is basically a 'woodshedding' site, a practice site to make practicing at home more fun. Practice is more fun when you know other people will be listening to your efforts.
Each jam lasts about 6 months, and you can join at any time. We often have hundreds of backing tracks pass through a single jam. Playing to an audience, even an online audience, is highly motivating and can make practice exciting.
As you upload songs you build an online album. By clicking on your picture, or anyone's picture, you can see and listen to the online album.
We play all genres of music: blues, jazz, country ... mixed genres that have no name. It's all fun to us. So come on in and grab a harp!
