That's entirely possible, but Little Walter was likewise a VERY technical
harmonica player.  The more you learn about harmonica and the more you
master it, the more you really come to appreciate Little Walter.  It's
not without reason that LW is the most imitated harmonicist.  And it's
great testimony to his skills that most imitators fall FAR short.

Anyone wanna try for yet another harp great?
