Big Walter ‘Shakey’ Horton Playlist

Big Walter “Shakey” Horton was a shy man but when he got on the harmonica he became a blues beast. Quite simply, he’s one of the most loved and respected blues harmonica players of all time.

For me, and many other harmonica players, his tremolo, and vibrato is second to none.

It starts with, “How the heck does he do that?”   And it becomes an obsession that can last years or decades to even skim the surface of figuring it out.

When you check out the playlist below listen for his tremolo and vibrato and please let me know what you think in the comments below.

And if you’re feeling inspired we’ve got two Big Walter harmonica lessons, here and here.
