Howdy, Mark, and welcome aboard. Little Sonny's New King of the Blues Harmonica was the record that taught me to solo, or at least that I could improvise solos: "arpeggio up, arpeggio down, blue note here and a blue note there, and last a turnaround" sort of thing was within my reach, not that I did it anywhere near as well. Wish I'd had a Harp Break then, too--

i've found the octave and tone+ better than the break with my 15 watt amp but the break rules with the 65 watt mother! :P :shock:
