Musselwhite woke a lot of people up to playing in multiple positions . using one harp to play in multiple keys. 9 of the songs listed use the most common position, 2nd. In Run Here Mama, Musselwhite does an unusual high note 2nd position solo. Normally this style of playing is done in first position. Key of F, Bb harp, 2nd position. In Way I Feel, 3rd position can be played in major blues but specializes in minor blues. Listen to all of the octaves, a good clue you may be listening to 3rd! Key of Am, G harp, 3rd position. Listen to Blues in the Dark, once you master 3rd position on a diatonic it is a short jump to 3rd position on a chromatic. Key of D, C chromatic, 3rd position.
Ostensibly an instructional blues harp album (with an exhaustive accompanying book penned by Charlie), this is emotional and listenable rather than academic. Charlie covers a wide range of blues styles (and harp positions), and ventures to the outer fringes of the genre for the instrumentals "Hard Times" (from Ray Charles's sax man David "Fathead" Newman) and his Latin original "Azul Para Amparo" (backed only by guitarist Sam Mitchell). The English studio band is sympathetic, especially pianist Bob Hall.
Charles Douglas Musselwhite (born January 31, 1944) is an American electric blues harmonica player and bandleader, one of the white bluesmen who came to prominence in the early 1960s, along with Mike Bloomfield and Paul Butterfield, or bands such as Canned Heat. He has often been identified as a "white bluesman". Musselwhite was reportedly the inspiration for Elwood Blues; the character played by Dan Aykroyd in the 1980 film The Blues Brothers.
