Learn Harmonica!

Hello Harmonica Lovers!

I’m going to be talking about what it takes to learn harmonica and different ways that are available for you to learn. The way that I learned to play the harmonica was by listening to cassettes by all the great harmonica players for hours and hours on end trying to figure out what key of harmonica I needed to play along with them. Then I bought a book called “How to Play Harmonica Instantly” that’s a link to an earlier page that I wrote about Harmonica Books.

To learn harmonica today it’s a lot easier and  faster but you still have to put in the time   effort and practice. But there are a lot of other ways to learn than the way that I had to because of how advanced everything is today with the internet and videos you can now learn from professionals harmonica instructor’s online for free.

Here’s a couple of examples of harmonica books that you can check out below.

Blues Harmonicas!

Hello Harmonica Lovers!

I’m going to tell you about blues harmonicas, which most harmonica players use when playing the blues.

The Richter-tuned harmonica, or 10-hole harmonica (in Asia) or blues harp (in America), is the most widely known type of harmonica. It is a variety of a diatonic harmonica, with ten holes, which offer the player 19 notes total, (10 holes times a draw, and a blow, for each hole, minus one repeated note) in a three-octave range.

The standard diatonic harmonica is designed to allow a player to play chords, and melody in a single key, diatonic harmonicas are available in all keys.

“Playing in different keys”

Playing the harmonica in the key to which it is tuned, is known as “Straight Harp,” or “first position” playing.  For example, playing music in the key of C, on a C-tuned harmonica, using mostly blow notes, and chords.

More common (especially in blues and rock) is “Cross Harp,” or “second position” playing which involves playing in the key which is a fourth  below, the key of the harmonica (for example, on a C tuned harmonica, a second position blues, would be in G, for the guitar, or music being played. This is is because the notes of the G  pentatonic scale, (a commonly used scale in blues, and rock) that are more easily accessible on a C-tuned harmonica. The lower notes, of harmonicas in the lower keys, (G through C) are easier to bend, but take more wind. Since much of Cross harp is played by breathing in, it’s important to blow out lots of air on every exhaled note, and during every pause.
