Too Young to Die by Sonny Boy Williamson Blues Harmonica Lesson on G Harmonica + Free Harp Tab

Sep 14, 2016 | Intermediate Harmonica Lessons

Hello and welcome to this week’s harmonica lesson where I will be showing you how to play Too Young to Die by Sonny Boy Williamson.

You will need a harmonica in the key of G and we will be playing in 2nd position in the key of D major.






Structure

You will notice that the structure is a little bit strange. It is not a standard 12 bar blues. Instead, there is a 2 bar break (with no backing) after the first 4 bars of the I chord, before the IV chord.

Practice playing each lick slowly along to the audio clips below.

Here is the backing track and the audio of me playing the full solo for you to use as a reference.
