The harmonica has been prominently displayed on Aerosmith's songs during their 3 decades long career over and over again. Steven Tyler clearly enjoys playing this expressive instrument, and draws from the roots blues tradition, as can be heard on the band's album "Honkin' on Bobo", dedicated to the style that would once evolve to Rock 'n' Roll and transform our world.
Steven uses Blues Harp MS in several songs, and a great example is the captivating intro to the song "Pink". In this particular song he plays a harmonica in C in second position, although Steven told us that he loves the low growling of A major harps.
