Hi, I'm Jake. If you're here, you probably already know me from the Jake Knows Harmonica YouTube channel. My goal is to help beginners get the right harmonica and learn all the good stuff quickly. That means I'll show you tips, tricks, cheats, and a whole lot more so that you'll become a great harmonica player faster.
As for me, I'm a Christian, husband, father of 5, and a bluesman. Based out of Elizabethtown, KY I attend Lakeside Worship Center (I play most Sunday mornings so if you're in the area I'll see you at 10:30). I'm also a male model...no joke.
My harmonica journey started when I was a kid and got really serious as an adult. There were no teachers in my rural childhood county so my progress on the harmonica was slow (I blame a lot of it on the cheap harmonicas that were given to me). Now, I'm constantly learning, teaching, and having fun with this wonderful instrument.
Over the years I've played on a lot of different stages, been on television (LIVE...with no audience...super creepy), recorded with several bands, traveled around the tri-state area, made friends, earned income, spent a fortune, and have had a fantastic time. I wouldn't be where I am today without the harmonica...I'm truly blessed.
When I'm not spending time with my harmonicas I'm busy running my websites keeping things real with my store www.oldschoolmusiccompany.com and wrangling kids around Hardin County, Kentucky.

Thanks for visiting the site and remember... keep harpin'!
