After admiring harmonica players for years, I finally decided to introduce it to our small garage band.
About a month and a half ago I picked up a Suzuki Promaster MR350 in C and a copy of David Harp’s book and CD. Lots of fun.
I found some harp tab for instrumental solos of a couple of songs our band currently plays to add variety to our sound and it has worked well.
I find it easy to play tab, but although I read music, trying to read music and play it on the harmonica has me stumped… so far!
After I finish the David Harp Book, i guess I’ll spring for the JP Allen intro course. I hear good things about it.
Understanding the “positions” was difficult until I learned these were just playing the key of the harmonica in different modes.
Well, life’s all about the journey; I know the final destination.
Hello to all…
