“Harmonica playing is very easy to learn. And very difficult to master.”
Sonny Terry

“So I went out and bought Hard Again by Muddy Waters. That was a big learning curve. I listened to that album again and again and again. James Cotton was the harmonica player on that album.”
Sonny Terry

“The harmonica is a great instrument.”
Toots Thielemans

“I play the harmonica. The only way I can play is if I get my car going really fast, and stick it out the window.”
Steven Wright

“If you’ve got a good vibrato, you can get away with a lot.”
Sonny Terry

“You can be in Tokyo or Alberta at four in the morning in your hotel and you can still practice if you feel like it. A trombone cannot do that at four in the morning.”
Toots Thielemans
