10 Famous Guitar Riffs You Can Play on Harmonica

From the classic Rocky training montage set to Eye of the Tiger, to a modern Marvel Avengers battle scene choreographed to an epic Led Zeppelin song…

Nothing gets us hyped like a great guitar riff!


So I decided to try out 10 of the greatest guitar riffs ever on harmonica.

Check out this list:

If you’ve seen my videos before, you know I normally do everything on a C harmonica. But this time I’m playing everything in the original key.

So in addition to my trusty C harmonica, I dusted off my keys of G, A, and D harps. Oh, and my Natural Minor Gm. Wanna know what positions I played them in?

:small_blue_diamond: 6 of the songs are in 2nd position (1 on a Natural Minor harmonica)

:small_blue_diamond: 3 of the songs are in 3rd position

:small_blue_diamond: 1 is in 1st position (but using 2 different harmonicas!)

Any hunches which is which? The answer might surprise you!
