Harmonica Play Along: Bye Bye Bird + free harp tab

Nov 8, 2015 | Harp Tabs, Intermediate Harmonica Lessons

Hello, today’s harmonica play along is Bye Bye Bird.

You will need a harmonica in the key of C. We are playing in 2nd position in the key of G this week. Sonny Boy Williamson played this on an extended range harmonica so if you listen to his version of it, it will be an octave lower.
