How to play Amazing Grace in 2nd Position Harmonica Lesson

Apr 11, 2018 | Intermediate Harmonica Lessons, Songs

Hello and welcome to this week’s lesson, where I will be showing you how to play Amazing Grace.

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

This is just a basic version of the tune but it does still involve playing some 3 draw whole step bends nice and neatly. If you struggle with this then click here for my lesson on playing the 3 draw whole step bend in tune.
