クロマティック・ハープとジョージ・ハーモニカ・スミス


最近とみにブルース・ハープにハマっていて、先日、自分が毎週ホストをつとめるブルース・ジャムセッションでも、クロマティック・ハープを使い始めた。
 
曲は、Philip Walker Live at Pit Inn  (1979年 日本ライブ)に入っている、George Harmonica Smith のインスト曲風のシャッフルだったが、いきなり結構受けた。
 
クロマティック・ハープは、ダイアトニック・ハープよりサイズが大きい分だけ、息が切れる。しかし、オクターブ奏法を駆使して、メジャー・キーの曲でも暗い陰湿な雰囲気をかもし出すのにもってこいだ。
 
ところで、そのアルバムの中に Mississippi River というスローブルースがある。そこでの若き日の吾妻光良氏のギターソロの切れ味はどうだ。月並みな言い方だが、その日本人離れしたディープなブルース感覚は、メインのフィリップ・ウォーカー氏のギターを凌いでいるのでは。

    The first thing you notice about a bee is that they are small and fuzzy. Bees gather honey and help pollinate plants. They live in colonies of 50,000 bees at the most with one queen bee ruling over all. After collecting nectar from flowers, worker bees go to their hive and process it into honey. This chairbee happens by chewing up the flower's sugar-rich nectar with enzymes in their mouths and then adding enzymes [url=https://chairbee.net]chairbee.com[/url] found on their stomachs to break down the complex sugars into simple sugars like glucose and fructose which can be easily digested by humans. Once this is done they place these droplets of sweet liquid into little cells within the hive where it will stay untouched for some time until its ready to be eaten or used as food.
