I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Blues from Blues Kitchen - Sam Hare, Mal Barclay, Lee Sankey

Footage starts with an Otis Span inspired piano solo from Joe Glossop. Then Sam Hare and Mal Barclay lay down some sweet blues. Mal paying in the style of T-Bone Walker. Lee Sankey harmonica, Jamie Lawrence bass, Rob Pokorny drums. Recorded live at the Blues Kitchen, London.
Sam Hare has come up through the British Blues scene, playing alongside the likes of not only Matt Schofield and Ian Siegal, but also Jeremy Spencer, Buddy Whittington, Scott McKeon, Lee Sankey and Raphael Ravenscroft. He was also personally invited to guest with Bonnie Bramlett (of Delaney & Bonnie) a few years ago, and has recently opened up for Jack Bruce, Vintage Trouble, Mark Flanegan and James Hunter. Hare has also worked with Saint Jude and Jet Tricks, having made writing, vocal and guitar contributions to the latter’s upcoming album, as well as being featured in their live band. He has also written or co-written songs for the last three albums by Ian Siegal – The Dust, Broadside, and The Skinny, and co-wrote the opening track ‘All you need’ with Matt Schofield for his first studio album Siftin’ thru ashes.
One of the hardest working blues guitarists in London and T-Bone Walker obsessive, Mal moved to London in 2002 after 12 years in Edinburgh. Since then, he's played with the best of the South East blues scene all over the UK and Europe - including appearances with Kurt Crandall, Jerimiah Marques & the Blue Aces, West Weston's Bluesonics, Pete G & the MagniTones, the Eric Ranzoni Trio, Sam Hare (as Hucklebuck and Soul Junction), Oo-Bop-Sh'Bam, and Gentleman Tim & the Contenders. Currently Mal may be seen on stage playing West Coast blues with The Cadillac Kings or soulful blues with Big Mamma's Door.

In this blues harmonica lesson Lee Sankey shows how you can add flourishes to the ending of your blues licks and phrases like a professional player. Lee runs through exercises in 1st, cross and 3rd position that demonstrate two important techniques. One, jumping an octave and two, avoiding the root note.
