Essential Advanced Intermediate Lessons

These lessons will help you master your skills on harmonica.

Recommended Gear

I highly recommend that Advanced Intermediate players have a slightly larger selection of harmonica keys. You will be ready for most scenarios with 10-hole diatonic harmonicas in the keys of G, A, Bb, C, D, F. You might also want to add some of the in-between keys such as Ab, B, Db, Eb, E and F# as you require them.
