This is a study of the first known cross harp approach to playing the harmonica that was originally often referred to as “choking.” Henry Whitter recorded a few versions of this in 1923 called “Rain Crow Bill Blues” and “The Old Time Fox Chase” followed by “Weepin’ Blues” and “Rabbit Race” in 1924 and “Lost John” in 1925. This original Filisko study song is intended to help folks get oriented at larger and more complicated pieces in this Fox Chase & Lost John tradition. My goal is for it to be the pathway to undertaking the cross harp approach of DeFord Bailey, Kyle Wooten, Palmer McAbee, Henry Whitter & others.
