S,ONNY'S STYLE !

First t.hings. first; make sure you I ve got the right kind of harpl Li ke most bl ues players, Sonny T,e-ny prnayed a 10-no,le diatonic harp Un his ease a Hohaer M·.arinie Band.] Some folks. prefer other similar models like the Blues Hlarpl-' Special 20j. Golde·n Melody;; Lee Osm:, H'UM& Meis;ter.i:laBse:; etc., any Qf' 'which are fine as :~ong as. they have 10 holes and .no sllde button.

While' SOlnny' pIayed. ,his harp upslde-down Oo,w notes to, the' )",wght",) it is . ~ o,~ necessary [nor recommended ]1 that you do the' same, On, 'Ole o'Ole-r hand [[no pun lntended.] if' yotrve somehow managed to a.l.r1eaJdY' L,e'arn 'to p~a,y upside-down n.k,~ Sonny, rutors; also not neeess .. y:fO:r you to now unlearn everything you know and switch over, It: really doesn"t matter"

Alse, Sonny played in. an acoustic manner, That Is, he didn~ t' hold

players Hke Little W'alterr ]uniotr Wle-1h"~. Wa],ter Horten and, others, He sffim.,ply played a'S though there was no, rnicrophone around. 'fhWs: fact; perhaps more than any other, exp lains how he was. able to achieve so many hand. effects Hke slapping, fanning, wah-wahs, etc ... he didn't have to worry about deopping a hand-held mtke,

Al hou gh ther-e are' a few recorded examples of J,erry' playing in first' position ('strai,gffiU' ha.F,p~.]i the: overwhelming majority of the time he p,rnayed cross hMP (second positicn.] And since I cannot: -reC'a~l hjm ever playing b\ th~rdr. fourth or :Hf'th po.,5it~ons..!' for Ul'@' purposes' of" this book, those posltions are not disc ussed,

The tenth track on. the: CD is. a bonus track which features some pretty startltn .. g harp" taken from an old 78, by th.e obscure Sa~'ty Holmes, It has nothing whatsoever 'to do with Sonny Terry, but U':s :;0 damn en,tertainill.,g I 'wanted to Include it an,ywa'Y!

The closest Sonny ever carnie to playing something Iike this was on his ts Mama Blues, 11' during which he made his harp speak a. :few' rudimentary words, Holmes' talking harmonica, however, is unquestionably the most arriculate example of this
