Harmonica Blues Music

Pioneered by Sonny Boy Williamson II, Lazy Lester and Jimmy Reed, then carried into the later part of the century by Little Walter and Junior Wells, Harmonica Blues centers around the blues "harp," or harmonica. Little Walter developed the style's electric sound in Chicago, while Slim Harpo played a neck harp in Louisiana at the same time.
