Hey all: I know that many of us here play other instruments. When I read a thread where someone talks about other instruments, I always wonder - what was the motivation? Was there a certain musician that influenced you to take up another instrument? I took up harmonica because of Sonny Boy Williamson, although the first person who really blew me away on the harp was Magic Dick from the J. Geils Band. I'm still not any good, but I enjoy trying. So, I'm going to throw this question out to another harp player to get us rolling and I hope people that play other instruments will chime in: @thunder58, was there any one player that influenced you to take up the harmonica?
