Hello and welcome to this week’s harmonica lesson where I will be showing you how to play the old blues standard – Rollin’ and Tumblin’.
For this lesson you will need a harmonica in the key of C and we will be playing in 2nd position (key of G)
If you are having trouble playing tongue-blocked then I recommend you check out my lesson on how to play them –

Rollin’ and Tumblin’ has a slightly weird structure and I have heard many different versions which are slightly different. I have based my version on the Eric Clapton unplugged version which you can listen to here –
Learn each chunk by itself and then practice putting them together.
