Shenandoah on Diatonic Harmonica
Jesu Joy of Mans Desiring on Diatonic Harmonica.wmv

You know Dave that Jesus of Joy desiring is tricky I just found some 2nd pos tabs and just laughed at it.

I wonder if that is what buddy green was using at carnegie hall.

Did you get tabs for it. And did it take you a while to learn.

Harp On!!

Joe > Jesu Joy is fairly easy. I never have used tabs ie all by ear. I’m pretty sure Buddy Greene at Carnegie Hall plays it in 1st Pos. Buddy plays 3 tunes in his classical medley using a C harp. His first tune is Jesu Joy in C then Mozarts Piano Sonata played in 2nd pos then Rossini’s William Tell Overture played in 1st pos.

I’m lost without tabs…
Will that come with more experience
Wish i could do that.

A real simple song I might be able to workout.
I guess it helps to know the song really well.

Harp on!!

A couple more. And a test to see if Joes advice has sunk in!

Joe, you should by now become somewhat less dependent on tabs particularly on simple tunes. I know that basically if I know a tune and particularly if I know the lyrics and can sing it in my head then I generally have no problem in playing it. I use the term generally for there are many exceptions. But, I fiddle around with tunes and if I can’t get started on eg hole 4B then try 6 or 7 or 3 or whatever. Doesn’t always work. Sometimes if I can’t get the start of a tune I try for eg the last line & once I’m going then it seems to work. You must know heaps of Bob Dylan tunes & these generally are really simple. [glow=red,2,300]Also try something like Silent Night as it is real easy ie start on 7B.[/glow]

The Irish fiddle tunes without lyrics are for me hard ie I often have to refer to tabs to get a start & even then I sometimes cannot get it as I might attack it differently so I end up having to listen to the start. Once going and I’m away! No lyrics & I have difficulty remembering which tune is which.

Try again

oops - which part of the address do I use?
North Queensland

everything thats in the address bar you got it.

Harp On!!

I thought I had figured out the beginning of Victory in Jesus, but then I got stuck so I looked up the tabs and it was completely different from what I was doing. I tried playing it by the tab and it didn’t sound right that way either. I’m going to find sheet music and see what it says to play and maybe I can clear this up for myself. Anyone have known good tabs for Victory in Jesus, or David is that something you know how to play?

I am not aware of the tune ‘Victory in Jesus’?

Generally I do not rely on tabs.

Very Nice, thats all I can say!

Jesu is a great tune! I play it in first position, but thats it! lol
