One of the Great Harmonica Players

© Copyright 2014 CorbisCorporation“This Guy Wails”   I have some more examples of (All About Harmonicas & Famous Harmonica Players)  Playing different kinds and styles  of “Hohner Harmonicas”.John Mayall in the picture was born on the 29th of November 1933 and grew up in Manchester England. He started the band John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers featuring Eric Clapton on Guitar. Looks like he’s Playing a Hohner Marine Band Harmonica in the picture above. He’s using a Vocal Microphone to play the Hohner harmonica through which gives you a more clear crisp sound verses the muddy blues sound from the Green Bullet Microphone.

  1. I used to play with harmonicas when I was young, pretty badly though. They can sound fantastic when they are in the hands of any expert. I have not listened to John Mayall, but I have seen Eric Clapton in concert.

    I also never realised that there were different specialist types of harmonicas.

    Thank you for your post, I have learnt something new.

  3. Harmonicas can sound absolutely beautiful when played by someone who has the experience. I know that some are just fortunate enough to have the talent, but many have to take lessons to get that good. Harmonicas really add to the sound next to a guitar and I enjoy listening to the music it brings.
