Gary Primich

My friend Gary Primich died. He was only 49. I learned more about playing harmonica from Gary than anyone else. He was an amazing teacher. He was one of the smartest persons that I have ever known.

Perhaps he never made it big because he sort of looked like Curly in the three stooges, but some of the greatest players agree that he was possibly the greatest harp player that ever lived.

Here is a video from youtube of an interview that Dave Barret did with Gary last month. Some of Gary’s sweet personality and thoughtful nature comes through.

I also told some Gary stories on, my harp blog.

Sorry about the vid, Jim.

    Sorry to hear your loss Keith. I don’t mind the vids so much once in awhile but some sites seem to over do it.

    I’ve also seen smaller portiions of these YouTube vids. Gmail shows them as you log into your account.

    That was a nice bit about Gary.

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
