Hey guys. Been trying to learn to play the harmonica several times, but I every time I’ve ended up giving up. The reason for this is I can’t figure out what the next step for me is.
I know how to hold the harmonica, I know how to blow single notes, and I know bending. I know the blues scale even though I can’t play it very fast. My handeffects are alright, my throat vibrato is non-excistent. I know the mannish boy lick. Blues is my life so I know how the 12 bar blues, and the progressions etc work.
My problem is that I know almost no riffs or licks, and I’ve got no feeling for improv yet, so I can’t just sit down and jam along with my blues vinyls.
The point is I don’t know where to go from here to progress. It seems like every book, dvd or youtube lesson is first step lessons (like bending, single notes etc) or solostuff that are way out of my reach yet.
I would really appreciate some help. I can’t wait to be able to jam along with Junior Wells and some of my other guys!
