Hello, in this week’s harmonica lesson from another teacher, Alex Paclin shows us how to play Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson on harmonica.
You will need a C harmonica to play along with Alex’s lesson.
Beginner, advanced beginner, intermediate
Alex says that this lesson is for beginners but I personally feel it would be better for advanced beginners and maybe even intermediate players
If you get freaked out by the phrases that he plays early on in the lesson because they have difficult bends, do not worry. Later on, he shows you how to play them in the middle octave where they are easier.
There is nothing incredibly challenging about this but it is quite fast. So, play along with the tabs that are up on screen slowly. Once you have mastered them, gradually increase the speed.
Alex is described as “Russia’s secret harp weapon!” he doesn’t disappoint.
