Very well done. On a personal note that brought a tear to my eye. My father, a humble man dead now 18 years, was an accomplished mouth harp player and when I closed my eyes and just listened to this vid I could see and hear my dad playing his mouth harp in the parlor.

Thanks for posting.

Coming from a background as a classically trained 'muso' all I can say is 'WOW"

Wow, just wow...

And may I add our own little Aussie bleeder Norman Gunston jamming with Frank Zappa.
The Aussies on here will love the last little bit Norman plays.

If you really want to see this bloke in action interviewing, look up his interview with Sally Struthers on YouTube.

Norm is a Superstar! We need more Norm's.

That Carnegie Hall performance was outstanding!

My father played a beautiful, 1940's, 2-row, 64-hole chromatic harmonica. Since he died, and wasn't around to teach us how to play it or take care of it, my brothers and I trashed it trying to learn it and figure out how it worked, mechanically. Dumb kids.
