*Most of these harmonica solos are played in 2nd Position (cross harp) on diatonic harmonicas, but two of the solos are played on a chromatic harmonica in the key of "G".



Video: "Struck By Thunder" (hard rock harmonica)

RECORDED in 1994- "Inspired by an AC/DC riff. Written and recorded by myself and Scott Linssen (electric guitar). Features one of my all time favorite snare samples." [Video Length: 03:25]

*Played in the key of "A" on a standard key of "D" diatonic in 2nd Position. The solo was played in the key of "Db" on a re-tuned B diatonic in 3rd Position.

RECORDED in 1991- Dave Gage at a Rock-Blues jam soloing on 12-bar blues in "A" on a "D" diatonic (sorry about the audio quality on this one). [Video Length: 01:30]



Video: "Love You Just the Same" (GAGE Band)

RECORDED in 1999 (released in 2000)- At some point, the Dave Gage Band became just GAGE. This was the first and final album for this hard rocking blues band. This is the title song of the "Love You Just the Same" album which included a total of 12 songs. It also included studio band versions of the Dave Gage instrumentals: "Struck by Thunder", "68 Blues", and "Secret". [Video Length: 04:34]

*Harmonica played in the key of "G" on a standard key of "C" diatonic in 2nd Position.



Video: "Tap 2" (solo rock harmonica)

RECORDED in 1995- "I was testing out a Barcus-Berry harmonica pickup and different sounds on an Alesis QuadraVerb GT effects box. I took the output of the mixing board and went directly to a DAT recorder so I could listen back later. I liked it enough that I decided to call this jam a 'song'. The first "Tap" song was on my "Well You Can't, Now Can You" CD from 1990. This was similar enough that I called it "Tap 2". It was a one time direct recording with no overdubs. The sounds created by the tongue switching techniques were inspired by Eddie Van Halen tapping and whammy bar effects on electric guitar." [Video Length: 02:19]

*Played in the key of "E" on a standard key of "A" diatonic in 2nd Position.



Video: "68 Blues- 1994 version"

RECORDED in 1994- "Written and recorded by myself and Scott Linssen (electric guitar). In 1999, a new version was recorded in studio with a live band. I like both versions so both have been uploaded." [Video Length: 03:19]

*Played in the key of "C" on a standard key of "F" diatonic in 2nd Position.
