Easy Chugging Call and Response Licks

Feb 22, 2017 | Beginner Harmonica Lessons

Hello and welcome to this week’s harmonica lesson, where I will be showing you how to play some easy chugging call and response licks. This is a great way to get comfortable alternating between chords and single notes.

You will need a harmonica in the key of C, and we will be playing in 2nd position in the key of G.




Call and response

This is an excellent way to start improvising. It involves taking a phrase (call) and repeating it with a slight variation (response).

In today’s lesson I have given you some ideas of simple licks you can use. Once you are comfortable with them you can start trying to create your own.
