Watch carefully the very beginning of this video by Sonny Boy Williamson, the greatest blues harmonica player ever. He starts the song holding the harmonica upside down, clearly, with the high notes on the left. He hits the wrong note, plays a quick chord down the harmonica, says, “Yeah…” cooly, like he meant to do it, flips the harmonica, and starts again. His face betrays no shock or frustration. Wow. I have a lot to learn from him…
