For a while, in 1965, they were bigger than.....The Beatles   ;)

The Critters had a hit with Younger Girl in 1966...

But John Sebastian wrote it for the Autoharp...

I hope you're having a good time relearning Autoharp, Kelley.


Here's my Oscar Schmidt OS100-15 Autoharp with its Oscar Schmidt magnetic pick-up...

If you believe in magic don't bother to choose
If it's jug band music or rhythm and blues
Just go and listen it'll start with a smile
It won't wipe off your face no matter how hard you try
Your feet start tapping and you can't seem to find
How you got there, so just blow your mind

Well, Barry....I'm afraid it's been languishing in its case. Life has been a bit on the hectic side here but I am hoping for a quiet weekend to come along so I can get to it. Tonight, though, I've really enjoyed all the videos you shared. I agree that The Lovin' Spoonful's version of Younger Girl is best. That song always stops me in my tracks; I love it.

But I wish he took his Autoharp out of mothballs for that one.



An older girl can sometimes spell trouble...

Yeah, it does. I like what he did there in that video from last year. Eddie's Attic looks like a fun place. But I bet it's really hot in Decatur, GA. ;D

He bluesed it up a bit there with a picking technique similar to what I learned from Ian Buchanan (although John Sebastian is using three fingers rather than the two-finger style Ian taught me).  But remember, he was part of the same Greenwich Village scene Ian Buchanan, David Von Ronk, Bob Dylan and others were in during the early 1960s...













They shared their guitar styles.  John Sebastian even has a few blues guitar instructional DVDs out...
