Hello and welcome to this week’s lesson, where I will be showing you how to play Mary Jane’s Last Dance by Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers.
You will need a harmonica in the key of G, and we will be playing in 3rd position in the key of A minor. However, the original song is actually in between A minor and Bb minor. It is actually slightly out of tune. In live recordings, the band used to play in A minor so that is why I settled for this key.
Great tune for beginners
This is a great tune for beginners to try learning as it is not too difficult to play. In fact if you play it like the original recording you don’t even need to play completely clean single notes.
