The Little Walter Transcriptions by Glenn Weiser
Now available for private study with Glenn via Skype

littlew.gif (8437 bytes) Below is a list of my transcriptions Little Walter's classic blues harmonica solos of 1950-1960. These 75 transcriptions (except for the 4 that are published in my book "Masters of the Blues Harp") are available only to private students who wish to study them with me on Skype or at either of my studio locations in Western Mass or Connecticut. They are not for sale. These are highly accurate transcriptions that include standard notation in the original key, harmonica tab, and guitar chords.
       Little Walter is widely considered the greatest blues harp player ever, so if you want to learn the Chicago style harmonica that he and others made famous, you can do no better than to study these solos.
       I am the author of three harmonica books, and I also was the longtime harmonica columnist for the folk journal Sing Out! magazine. I have over 30 years of teaching experience as well.
