Jon Gindick provides us with this weeks harmonica lesson from another teacher.
He shows us how to play his “good morning riff” which is a great start for people wanting to improvise.
For this lesson you will need a C harmonica. The lesson is suitable for advanced beginner players.
John is playing in second position. This means he is playing in the key of G. Usually, harmonica players use second position for bluesy stuff.
Just three notes
1 draw, 2 blow, 2 draw!
It is absolutely amazing what Jon does with just three notes. He will show you how you can add variations to the sequence in order to improvise over a 12 bar blues.
The lesson is very free-form but don’t let this put you off. Gindick is dropping some serious knowledge.
