Lord Valve Speaketh:
Folks out there need to know that, when installing a grounded line
cord on old amplifiers, the line cord they purchase may use the
international standard for wire colors. It’s BROWN = HOT, BLUE =
NEUTRAL, and GREEN/YELLOW = GROUND. The US standard is BLACK =
HOT, WHITE = NEUTRAL, and GREEN = GROUND. “Crusty” and I were
talking on the phone tonight, and he happened to mention that he
had changed his Deluxe Reverb to a grounded line cord but he was
still getting zapped..but only with the ground switch in one
position. I asked him to tell me how he had wired it up, and as
soon as he mentioned that he put the GREEN wire on the fuseholder
(yow!) I knew it was bad news. It just turned out that he didn’t
know the international wire color code, and got things screwed
up. Luckily, he’s still breathin’. 😉

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.

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.
