Lord Valve Speaketh:
Do not, do *NOT* put WD40 into any piece of audio equipment you own,
unless it has squeaky casters on it. Radio Shack pot cleaner is crap.
Chemtronics is little better. EVERY major recording studio in the
world uses Caig Labs products. Preferred solutions for guitar amps and
other musician-type gear are D5S-6, DN5S-6, MCL5S-6, D100-2, MCL100-2,
and any of the Pro-Gold series. For all-around maintenance and
cleaning on musical equipment, a can of D5S-6 and a can of MCL100-2
will take care of 99% of the dirty pots and switches you may encounter.
I believe their website is http://www.caig.com . You guys out in the
boonies can mailorder it from me…e-mail for details.

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 began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.

Harp Tab

A collection of songs and riffs that I’ve worked out over the years, plus some libraries of stuff I’ve converted to tablature. I’ve included most of the notes and instructions that helped me when I was learning to play blues harmonica.
