So I was just rummaging through some childhood toys and boxes in storage when I came across an Honor Blues Harp (key of C) harmonica. I grabbed it and started playing around with it when I thought.. man I need a harmonicamasterclass.net! biggrin.gif - Cheesy I know.

Anyways, anyone know how to play and/or got any advice for basic harmonica? I thought it could be a unique side instrument to play.

I have A key harmonica and learned some simple stuff like Blowing in the Wind, and some blues licks, but far from being able to play it. I learned to play one note at a time, but sharps and flats are still a mistery to me smile.gif

I bet you can find a site for it. smile.gif My Networking teacher asked about violin lessons when I told her about this site. I googled it right there in the lab and found a FREE site where I guy gave lessons. Maybe you can do the same with the harmonica? wink.gif

Well, that might be a good idea, I have several harmonicas, including a chromatic one that is totally impossible to play... On the other side of the coin the guitar is hard enough. tongue.gif I'd rather see a site like: "HowToFindNastyWomenMasterclass.net" or "HowToEarnMoneyWithoutWorkingMasterclass.net"......

I got a 16C one.. sortof free

I made an order of 90 euros at a site.. but there was 10euro shipping fee, when you order there for 100+ there is no shipping..
So i ordered the 10euro harmonica with it and total cost was 100euros... just like total price was without it! ;D

Would like to learn some easy stuff with it aswell smile.gif

I also have a harmonica in the key of C and managed to learn few simple songs from Beatles like - Love Me Do and Should Have Known Better. I was first just practicing to get the basic and clean (as possible at my skill level) tones. Then I hit youtube in search for those songs and learned them pretty easily once I was able to isolate single notes on harmonica. Its very fun to play smile.gif

There are lots of harmonica tabs on the web, and they are very easy to follow, they usually only have numbers like 4 (which means blow into hole number 4), or something like -4 (which means draw air from hole number four).

CODE
6 7 8 -8 7 8        -8    7   -6    6
Amazing    Grace! How sweet the sound
6   7  8 -8   7  8  -8   9
That saved a wrentch like me
8  9      8  -8 7 8    -8  7   -6         6
I once was      lost but now I'm found
6  7          8-8 7 8  -8       7
was blind, but    now I see


Here's one easy song, amazing grace, simplified version smile.gif

I think if I were going to play harmonica I'd play by ear. ... unless I was doing Flight of the Bumblebee or something. Then I would need the tab. biggrin.gif tongue.gif .
