How to play Amazing Grace on harmonica by Playa T

Sep 10, 2015 | Beginner Harmonica Lessons, Guest Teachers

Hello, here is this week’s harmonica lesson from another teacher. You will be learning how to play Amazing Grace from my friend Playa T.

You will need a harmonica in the key of C and this lesson is suitable for beginners

Playa T (aka Lucas Clebsch) talks you through step-by-step, how to play this classic song on harmonica.

First position

The lesson is played in first position. This means that you are playing in the key that the harmonica comes in. So, because we are using a C harmonica, we are playing in the key of C.

You might be screaming at the screen now saying “of course we are playing in the key of C”. But, you will soon find out that quite often we play in different keys on the harmonica. This is known as playing in a different position.

Careful those high notes

Watch out for those high notes on the harmonica. They can sound quite squeaky if you don’t play them gently.
