Anyone else listen to Fred Eaglesmith? He has some realy cool songs, I'm not sure who plays the harp, but my favorite song is Freight Train. New twist (for me anyway) on the train sound. Check it out.

Never heard of him before, thanks for the tip. He's got a really rootsy sound and that minor-key country rock would lend itself to 4th position... cute drummer, too.

I never heard of him... looks like there is more than one version of "Freight Train" (3 from different albums show up on iTunes)... which one has harmonica in it ?

Hey Ken I think what your looking for is "Ralph's Last Show"

The track 'Freight Train' is roughly an A minor through F-G-C progression and Fred (?) is playing an F harp. Sort of 2nd meets 1st meets 5th position with no bends. Very nice to hear people doing different diatonic stuff.
