Hello and welcome to this week’s harmonica lesson, where I will be showing you how to play Rock Me Baby by Slim Harpo.

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




Performance tips

The key with this 12 bar is to be nice and gentle. Don’t hit those notes too hard. If you listen to the original below, you will hear that Slim Harpo is super smooth and not aggressive.
