Harmonica Tunes!

Hello Harmonica Lovers!


This post is going to be on harmonica tunes for beginners, first of all you need a C harmonica, as most songs are in that key to start off with, when playing Straight Harp for simply melodies like “Mary had a little Lamb” and “Row, Row, Row your Boat.” Some of the easiest song to learn are these below. I have an example of a couple of the songs below, “Row, Row, Row your Boat” and “Mary had a Little Lamb”


  • Amazing Grace
  • Home On The Range
  • Oh Susanna
  • Heart Of Gold
  • Hey Jude
  • Piano Man
  • Somewhere Over The Rainbow
  • Happy Birthday

“Row, Row, Row your Boat”  key of C Harmonica (B-Blow)  (D-Draw)

4B 4B 4B 4D 5B                                                                                                                                                       5B 4D 5B 5D 6B                                                                                                                                                       7B 7B 7B 6B 6B 6B                                                                                                                                                   5B 5B 5B 4B 4B 4B                                                                                                                                                   6B 5D 5B 4D 4B

As you can see from the example above, this is what they call First Position Playing, which is also referred to as Straight Harp Playing, which is mostly blow notes when played on the harmonica. Here’s another example of a beginners song “Mary had a Little Lamb” (B-Blow) (D-Draw)

5B 4D 4B 4B 5B 5B 5B                                                                                                                                           4D 4D 4D 5B 6B 6B                                                                                                                                                 5B 4D 4B 4D 5B 5B 5B                                                                                                                                           4D 4D 5B 4D 4B


As you can see, there are a lot of similarity of the song above this one “Row,Row,Row your Boat” has basically the same pattern of Blow,and Draw for First position Playing. This is also a lot of Melody Songs, to learn the basics on the harmonica, everyone starts  here when they start, learning to play the harmonica.  I did when I first started to learn the harmonica, you have to start from somewhere. I would suggest to purchase a quality harmonica to start off with, the Hohner Special 20 key of C is a really good harmonica from beginners to professionals.   It’s better to spend a little more money, to get a quality harmonica,  which will make it a lot easier, and more pleasurable to learn on, than a cheaper harmonica that is not airtight.
