Peter Menta (AKA Washboard Slim): Basics of Blues Harmonica
In this workshop Peter will teach the basics of blues harmonica: how to hold the instrument properly to get good tone, a few essential rhythm patterns, and will demonstrate how to bend notes to get that true blues sound. 10-hole diatonic Hohner Harmonicas will be provided for you to keep, but if you have one in the key of C or the key of A, bring it along. PLEASE BRING YOUR KAZOO OR ASK FOR ONE AT THE ARTS ALLIANCE OF STRATFORD TENT TO HUM ALONG WITH A SPECIAL NUMBER PETER MENTA WILL LEAD.

Peter Menta has fronted the band Washboard Slim and the Blue Lights for over four decades. He has studied and mastered the harmonica styles of many of the great blues artists.
