Hi from San Francisco
« on: February 04, 2016, 02:37:46 PM »
Hi, I'm Winslow Yerxa. For those who might not know me, I'm the author of the books Harmonica For Dummies and Blues Harmonica For Dummies, past president of SPAH, the Society for the Preservation and Advancement of the Harmonica (still active in awards, entertainment, and youth scholarships), faculty member at the California Jazz Conservatory, and columnist at I teach harmonica and play chromatic, diatonic, tremolo, bass, and chord harmonicas. I play traditional music (Celtic, Canadian, old-time, bluegrass), jazz, pop, blues, and a bit of classical. My articles on chromatic for the webzine HarmonicaSessions are available at my website, - I invite you to check it out.

I hope to add to the discussions here and pass on news of interest from time to time.

Welcome! Yes, you should be pretty well-known to most members here  :)

Thanks for being so active and promoting harmonica playing in so many modern forums for harmonica in recent years.

I heard Winslow speak at a couple SPAH Events 15 years ago.  Let's hope he comes back!
