If you’ve never played harmonica before this is the place to start. I will show you what kind of harmonica you need, how to hold it, play chords, clean notes, a train rhythm and your first 12 Bar Blues. I’ll also show you where to go from there. If you have already been playing a little bit you will probably still benefit from starting here. There is nothing wrong with strengthening your foundations. It will just make you a better player for the future.
