Most cities of any size have printing shops that will make decals. “Short
run of custom decals” means “Make me a few special things that are a
unique process” to a printer, which gets translated as “I’m willing to
pay a lot of money for something odd and you’ll never see me again” in
most cases.

You can make your own decals with Dyna Art Designs’ “Toner Transfer
System” papers. Order the sheets (DigiKey has them), and find a
printing/copying/photo place that will print on your paper in their color
laser copier. Make the print, then spray a couple of coats of clear
lacquer on the sheet and let it dry. Voila, decals. The paper is about
$1.50 a sheet in 5-sheet packages. Color laser copies are about $1-$2



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 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.
