Canned Heat's On the Road Again

Alex Paclin and Alan Wilson Playing the Harmonica

If you grew up in the 60’s, you might be reading this right now because of On the Road Again by Canned Heat - one of the most popular classic harmonica songs of the decade. :v:t3:

Alex Paclin is back at it doing an awesome cover of it on an A harmonica in 2nd position.

I don’t think anything Alex does is for beginners. :rofl: But for you intermediate players :muscle:t3:, here’s the tabs for the intro:

-2” -2 -2 -3’ 4 -3’ -2

-2” -2 -1 -1’ -1

-2 -3’ 4 -3’ -4’ -4 -45 (trill)

-2 -3’ 4 -3’ (quick slide from -4 down to) -2


Oh yes, this is a cool song and as you write @Luke very well known as a kid of the 60’s!

I watched your video on Sunday and am always amazed at how easy and relaxed you can play the harp! Admirable!

Very very cool. I think they played that at Woodstock. They were there anyway. It has not lost any appeal for me. I would love to be able to play it well.
