Today’s free harmonica lesson is how to play Silent Night on a C harmonica in the lower octave as against all the other lessons you will find on the easy to play higher octave!
Watch out for all those low bends on the 3 hole and 2 hole. You will need to approach them slowly and gently so that they don’t end up sounding like a foghorn – we are going for sweet melodic sounds!
