W.C. HANDY AWARD WINNER & LEADING FEMALE HARMONICA PLAYER ANNIE  RAINES RELEASES FIRST INSTRUCTIONAL INTERACTIVE VIDEO SOFTWARE "BLUES  HARMONICA BLUEPRINT" ON TRUEFIRE JULY 31
 
68 VIDEO LESSONS AND 263 MINUTES OF INSTRUCTION MAKE THIS MOST COMPREHENSIVE INSTRUCTION TO DATE
 
Blues Music Award winner and foremost of only a handful of female  harmonica players Annie Raines has recorded the most comprehensive  harmonica instruction to date and the only interactive video format with  "Blues Harmonica Blueprint" with 263 minutes of instruction, 68 video lessons, and over 75 charts. It will be available as  interactive video software available via DVD-R or download July 31.  Raines is eminently qualified to teach as harmonica legend James Cotton  calls Raines “James Cotton Junior” and Muddy Waters sideman Pinetop Perkins said, “She plays so good it hurts."
 
Here is TrueFire's Blues Harmonica Blueprint playlist on YouTube, with numerous embeddable clips: http://truefire.com/tftv/index.html?channel=harmonica-blueprint
 
Presented for the beginner to advanced intermediate player, this  revolutionary video drills deeper and wider than any blues harmonica  course ever published. Over two years in the making, with hundreds of  hours dedicated just to the visual notation guides and animations, "Blues Harmonica Blueprint" features animated graphics  showing where the notes are as they're being played; detailed video  breakdowns of songs and exercises; text descriptions; live band jam  tracks so you can play along with a blues combo including guitarists Paul Rishell & Troy Gonyea; an adjustable metronome; and a  guitar tuner in multiple tunings.
 
One of the challenges of teaching harmonica is that one cannot see what a  harp player is doing and TrueFire's animation over the footage of  Raines cuts through that barrier.
 
Finally, Raines teaches solos and repertoire in the styles of blues  harmonica masters such as Sonny Boy Williamson II, Big Walter Horton,  Jimmy Reed, and Little Walter.
 
Having learned from Jerry Portnoy who has toured with Muddy Waters and  Eric Clapton, Raines has performed on three Susan Tedeschi albums and  with John Sebastian over her distinguished twenty-five year career. She  has been the touring and recording partner of Paul Rishell for over twenty years. They have released six albums  together, including the W.C. Handy Award-winning 'Moving to the  Country.'
 
Over the past 20 years, TrueFire has worked with over 600 top artists  and educators building what Guitar Player magazine calls "the planet's  largest and most comprehensive selection of guitar lessons. Over 220,000  students from 140 countries are enrolled in various TrueFire educational programs"
