To see the entire hour and a half interview visit www.bluesharmonica.com and become a subscribed member to have access to this and the other 1,200 videos on the site (lessons and interviews). Born in Los Angeles on Sonny Terry's birthday (October 24), Tom began playing guitar at the age of eleven and took up harmonica two years later. A teenage member of the Yerba Buena Blues Band in the mid-1960's, he played Love-Ins and Sunset Strip nightclubs before leaving the country for most of the '70s. In 1978 he came back to the U.S. and teamed up with guitarist Kenny Sultan - a partnership that still flourishes today and has resulted in eight duo CDs and literally thousands of concerts and festivals all over the world. The Tom Ball & Kenny Sultan duo has appeared on television internationally, played for audiences of 300 million via Voice Of America, were featured on the Levi's 501 Blues commercials and are frequent guests of National Public Radio. Their music from the film Over The Edge won them the prestigious Telly Award in 1994, and they were the only musical act in America to play all four venues of the 1984 Olympic Games. In addition to working with Kenny, Tom has played harmonica on over 200 CDs, performed and sung on countless film soundtracks, TV shows and commercials, recorded four solo guitar CDs, written five instructional books and authored a couple of novels. Tom's most recent studio projects include playing with Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band on the soundtrack to the film "Hoot," and with Kenny Loggins on his latest two CDs, "All Join In" and "How About Now." Tom has been on the cover of both American Harmonica Newsmagazine and Harmonica World, and Blues Revue called his playing "stupendous," and Sound Choice magazine wrote, "The best acoustic blues act going, bar none!" Meanwhile he has carved out a secondary career as a solo guitarist and "kills time" writing both music books and fiction. Tom is one of the best acoustic harmonica players in today's scene. His Sonny Terry-influenced playing and control of hand usage on the harmonica are also of great interest in this interview. You can learn more about Tom at www.tomball.us

Blow! Blow! Blow! by David Barrett (Bb Harmonica, Key of F)
 
03:30
Our next “behind the scenes” footage from the new CD "It Takes Three" is my original blues harmonica instrumental “Blow! Blow! Blow!” You’ll notice that I’m reading from sheet music. This is my blues science experiment where the entire song is based on the first lick. Though we use repetition within a chorus in the blues (known as Chorus Forms), there’s never been a blues harmonica instrumental written based completely on the first lick… until now! Every lick in this song is directly related to the first lick presented. The lick is played: backwards (retrograde); upside down (inversion); backwards and upside down (retrograde inversion); twice as fast (diminution); slowed to half speed (augmentation); used in pieces (fragmentation), transposed to different chords (sequences); and many other transformative tools. If you would like to learn about these techniques and see this song broken down, check out my complete lesson at BluesHarmonica.com (Improvising Study 11). The CD "It Takes Three" is now available at bit.ly/ittakesthree and transcription set (harp tab/music notation) at http://bit.ly/1Qokj3h. Musicians are Kid Andersen (guitar), Mike Phillips (bass) and Marty Dodson (drums). Those interested in the making of the CD, from inception to recording (over eight hours of instructive footage), subscribe to BluesHarmonica.com to see this detailed Recording Study series.
