May 30, 2018 | Backing Track, Intermediate Harmonica Lessons, Licks, Songs

Hello and welcome to this week’s lesson, where I will be showing you how to play the intro and first verse of She Caught The Katy by Taj Mahal.

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

This song is an excellent example of call and response between vocals and harmonica.

Steal Licks

I highly recommend that you “steal” these licks and use them when you are accompanying a singer. Don’t forget that you can play them on any key harmonica and are totally allowed to change them to fit the situation.
