One of the gifts Liliana received for her recent birthday was a harmonica, and she’s had such fun learning how to “slide” and breathe in and out, and it all sounds quite fantastic. Who can go wrong on a harmonica?
Then my mom arrived. [She’s visiting for a week.] And guess what? She knew all about Buddy Greene, so we pulled it up on YouTube. Liliana sat, enraptured, then afterward, got up to give us a short concert. Really, it was all about the performance, not necessarily the notes.
But it’s a start.
And we applauded, like the good parents and grandparent we are.
This video is pretty amazing, since we’ve all had those harmonica moments, where we dismiss it as a kid’s toy. Nuh-uh. Not anymore.
Go, Buddy Greene, go, go, go!
