eBay had “Delta Blues” harmonicas as a featured deal the other day, so on a whim I bought one. I love the sound of a well-played harmonica, and I love the blues, so I figured why not take a shot at learning to play it? I used to play trombone in high school and college so I have a bit of musical background, but the way the harmonica is played is fairly foreign to me.
(an advantage of the harmonica over the trombone: it’s quiet enough that you can practice it in an apartment without cheesing off the neighbors.)
I stumbled on this page looking around on the Internet for some beginner tips. I’m glad I found it.
I’m still working on developing the proper embouchure to consistently produce single notes. I seem to detect some slight improvement.
