Allen Bradley have “solid” colors used in color band,
Ohmite had this little ridge running the length of the
resistor as though 2 halves were sandwiched together,
Stackpole had sorta Pastel Colors. There was yet another
vendor whose color bands were sorta zig-zaggedly
painted on.

Just resistor trivia. There was some reasons for knowing
the difference, because the Cryogenic behavior was
radically different from vendor to vendor.



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.

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.
