Udemy's BEST SELLING ultimate and complete harmonica course - with over 17,000 students.

No harmonica experience? No problem, I'll walk you through nice and slow.

Did you ever fool around with a harmonica as a kid?

Would you like to learn to play the harmonica better now?

Do you play guitar, piano, ukulele or are you a singer and want to add harmonica into your act?

Do you want an instrument that's easy to pick up, store and carry?

Did you inherit a harmonica and want to pay respect to the original owner??

Where you inspired by Bob Dylan, Sonny Terry, Little Walter, Mick Jagger?

Would you like to play in a church, campfire, band or jam session?

Do you think harmonica will help with COPD or other health issues?

Is this a retirement 'bucket-list' project?

If you answered yes to any of those who are in the right place.

This course will help you become a great harmonica player. All you need to do is follow the lectures in order plus some practice and you will start to feel a surge of confidence as you see your skills increasing daily.

This will be exciting, fun, and challenging – I think you will thoroughly enjoy it!

I will be there in the room with you walking you through step by step and holding your hand. You can contact me any time on BenHewlett@me.com or through this site. You can even call me on Messenger, WhatsApp or Skype.

Read the reviews to see what other people think, here are a few:

"Super clear explanation; he taught me more thus far than any book I've tried yet. Two thumbs up!"

"I tried many harmonica beginner courses but this one is the best of all."

"Ben is amazing. He knows how to teach. Highly recommended course."

"This is the best online music lesson course I have taken. Ben is an awesome instructor! Very knowledgeable and has a great style of teaching."

I think people recognise my passion for the harmonica. I’m not someone who plays bass, guitar, piano, drums and sings, records, gigs…I just (mostly) teach harmonica.

Sure I perform sometimes, gig with friends, go to jams, do corporate harp demonstrations but MOSTLY I focus on playing, learning and teaching harmonica.

So if you have a Hohner harmonica, a blues harmonica, hohner special 20, a chromatic harmonica (ok, not that one) a blues harp, a hohner big river, a harmonica holder, a harmonica set…you can start to play now.

Give me a shout if you need any help please.

- How would it feel like - to know that you can FLUENTLY play all the songs that you were struggling with for a long time?

- To know that you can execute (without even paying attention to it) any chord transition that you used to struggle with?

Sounds good, right?

Welcome! This is what you've been looking for. By the end of this course - you will be able to easily execute the chord changes between all the basic chords - in a smooth and lightning-fast way. Without even looking. The result: You will be playing songs effortlessly.

"Playing fast at campfires was stressful for me. That changed now. The exact course I was missing for years! Even fingerpicking was easier than strumming chords."  Markus Hees (Google Translate from German)

★★★★★
"The instructions are clear and informative and presented in an entertaining way. There are lots of examples of songs that you can play." Ivan Carter

★★★★★

"Very simple and straightforward concepts that just work! Changing chord never felt so easy. Great bonus pdf’s as well." Barak Yaari

★★★★★

"When I first saw this course I really hoped that it would be the information that I needed to make me sit down and work on my chord changes and strumming. I am delighted to say that it really is!! I am already seeing a big difference in my playing. If you are unhappy with the speed and accuracy of your chord changes, your guitar and your audience will love you!" Amanda Yates

★★★★★

"All of a sudden, my fingers know where to go and hey presto I can finger the chord and make chord transitions so much easier." Malcolm Casswell

★★★★★

This mini-course will teach you exactly how to overcome (and speed through!) the obstacle of changing chords fast - which is the #1 obstacle that is causing 90% of the beginner guitarists to quit within a few weeks/months.​ 

By enrolling and putting in the little work that you'll learn about - I can assure you that you WON'T be one of the quitters.

Changing chords is not gonna be a challenge for you anymore - and instead you are going to focus simply on playing the songs fluently, and even singing along if you wish.

You will achieve that through practicing (for a couple of minutes a day) a small bunch of simple, fun, yet extremely powerful exercises - which will help you DRILL all the chord changes deep into your muscle memory.

You are going to feel the results today, and you are going to be able to cut through months of slow improvement in just days-couple of weeks, and skip to the fun parts of playing the guitar.

By doing the exercises - you will be able to take your guitar playing from the initial, hard stage, where it feels like constant "hard work" - where each chord change is a hassle - and you have to look down and slowly move your fingers one by one...

Into the stage where it's just "pure, expressive fun", and you can simply play all of your favorite songs without even thinking about it, without any efforts, and without these "flow-killing" stops between the chords.

Guitar is simple - by knowing these basic chords and how to switch between them at ease + a couple of strumming patterns (which I will teach you in the course as well) = you will be able to play literally tens of thousands of songs.

So join me inside and start having FUN with your favorite songs, instead of struggling with changing chords.

Why should you listen to me on this?

I own almost ALL of my progress on guitar in my first few years to a couple of close friends who showed me these exercises when I just started out.

Thanks to the exercises, I was able to see tremendous and fast improvement in my ability to play my favorite songs - which is what kept me so motivated to keep going along the guitar-learning journey - which so many people give up on.

Over the years, I improved the exercises, added to them, and taught them to my own students, while consistently seeing these tremendous results keep happening - time and time again.

Trust me - you're going to be surprised by the speed at which you're going to see yourself improving and playing your favorite songs in a smoother and better way, every single day. ENJOY!

What would it feel like if you knew that you are a master of this tiny, cool instrument - the harmonica, that you can play any song on it, and you can beautifully jam with your guitarist friends?

To know that you can always simply take out this great little instrument - and just have a blast with it.

Welcome to the course that'll let you do it all!

-

Do you want to play a cool instrument - the harmonica, and to be able to play music with other people? Do you want to play dozens of famous songs on your harmonica, and also to be able to improvise and create your own beautiful solos when jammin' with other people?

Harmonica Jamz is exactly what you're looking for, and you will learn all of that in several weeks. Yes, the harmonica is an easy instrument!

In three sentences, what is Harmonica Jamz?

Do you know Bob Dylan? Neil Young? Other famous rockers who jam the harmonica that you like?

Harmonica Jamz is your one stop shop for learning how to play songs and jam on the harmonica BETTER than all of these guys, quickly.

And you DON'T have to have previous musical experience - since it is designed for experienced musicians or total beginners alike. Harmonicas are easy - and this is the optimized, most effective way to learn it.

"Excellent course, I never played any instrument before but after a couple of jam sessions with Alon I was already jamming with my dad at home. The quality of the video editing and the helpful texts on screen were also very impressive." Josh Cole, England.

Wait. Why should I play the harmonica anyway?

Well, harmonicas are unique instruments in a couple of ways. They are:

  • Easy to learn and to play. (when done with the right teaching method)

  • Extremely compact - can always in your backpack or pocket, ready to play.

  • AFFORDABLE. 40$ buy you the best ones, hand-made in Germany.

  • Social instruments - always ready to jam with other guitarists and friends. 

  • Sound great with multiple music genres from rock, to blues, to pop and country.

  • Developing your ears and feel for the music.

Why shouldn't I take another course or just watch free YouTube lessons? 

Two reasons: 

1) Your time is valuable, and trying to learn your way through random lessons on random harmonica topics (instead of using a systematic, proven approach) will never get you as far as where I can take you - and in a much shorter time.

2) Harmonica Jamz is built in a unique way which makes it the most interactive (and therefore - fun and easy to learn from) harmonica course online. After each lecture, we will have an interactive jam session where you will be playing the harmonica along to the relevant music, while the key points that we just talked about will be right in front of you, in a text form.

This way, you have fun while the knowledge gets implemented in your brain and gets you ready to get out there and jam with real people.

*By the way, Harmonica Jamz is also professionally produced and filmed in a boutique music studio, and in standards of quality that are unknown in the harmonica videos world. The lessons are a joy to watch and listen to - as you can see in the previews. 

What are the topics that are covered in the course? How will they help me?

We cover two big topics: 1) Playing Songs. 2) Improvising music and jammin' with other people.

It is all done using the following "building blocks": 

  1. Playing the harmonica with the tone of a professional - to get the most beautiful sound you can out of your harp.

  2. Learning to play single notes - this will enable you to enrich your musical pallete and play ANY song. 

  3. We will learn specifically how to play some famous rock songs to get you started.

  4. You will learn the essentials of music theory - this will enable you to start IMPROVISING your own riffs.

  5. When you know how to improvise, you can confidently get out there and jam with other musicians!

  6. You will acquire a solid sense of rhythm through the Harmonica Jamz Rhythm Method™. Rhythm is one of the biggest foundations to sound great on any music instrument. 

  7. You will know all the notes of the harmonica in all three octaves. This means you will be able to play songs by ear and to improvise with ease - instead of randomally "shooting in the dark" like how most amateur harmonica players do. 

All the lessons are built in a revolutionary, interactive way. How exactly?

  1. In the first part of each lesson - I am in the studio, teaching you the new technique while giving examples on HD video. 

  2. In the second part of each lesson - the course becomes totally interactive - I am playing a jam track for you, (in beautiful, live HD video as you can see in the free preview) while you are at home jammin' along. On screen I will be reminding you, through text, all the key points we just talked about.

So you get to learn while havin' fun and while you are much more likely to ingrain the material than with any other course out there!

Sound good! You mentioned that we'll learn some songs. Which songs exactly? 

Yes! Playing songs' melodies is one of the most satisfying musical experiences you can have. 

In the course, I will show you my examples of those songs, and then you will get to play them yourself while I show you the harmonica notes on screen and the music is playing for you in the background without my harmonica. (check out the preview of "Let It Be".

The songs that we will learn include:

  • The Beatles - Let It Be

  • Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah

  • Old Crow Medicine Show - Wagon Wheel

  • Louis Armstrong - What A Wonderful World

  • Bob Marley - Jammin'

  • Neil Young - Heart of Gold

  • Bob Dylan - Knockin' on Heaven's Doors

  • The Rolling Stones - Angie

  • You Are My Sunshine

  • Elvis Presley - Can't Help Falling in Love with You

  • and 10+ others!

The Complete ARPEGGIO SONGS Guitar Course: Beautify Songs!

Learn Everything About The #1 Way to Beautify Your Songs: Arpeggiating the Chords (Playing the Notes Individually)

How would it feel like - to know that you can BEAUTIFY any song that you choose - and easily create a much cooler version if it?

---

Are you tired of the same boring way of playing songs - only by strumming them? ("down-down-up", etc.)

In this course - you will learn how to play song using arpeggio picking - which I like to call "the #1 way to beautify ANY song".

After this course, you will be able to EASILY play any song that you love while using this special guitar technique.

Even if originally it's a song that was played by using full strums - you will learn how to "convert" it.

---

Think about the following songs - can you recall the guitar picking style that makes them sound special and stand out? I bet you do for at least some of them:

  • Green Day - Time of Your Life

  • Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven

  • The Eagles - Hotel California

  • Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah

  • Bob Dylan - Don't Think Twice It's Alright

  • Fleetwood Mac - Landslide

  • The Animals - House of The Rising Sun

  • R.E.M - Everybody Hurts

This picking style - called arpeggio picking - where we pick the notes individually instead of strumming all strings together - is the topic of the course.

This is personally my favorite way to play songs in - and I also really like to take songs that are originally strummed and instead spice them up using arpeggios. 

You will learn exactly how to use the beautiful arpeggio technique and incorporate it into any song that you'll choose to:

  • All about playing songs using the arpeggio picking - and that means that we will be talking practically and using examples from popular rock and pop songs.

  • Exactly how to convert ANY regular (strummed) song into an interesting, arpeggiated one.

  • How to use the arpeggio technique both by using a pick or by using your fingers. (Fingerstyle arpeggio)

  • The #1 secret for smoothness and accuracy when playing arpeggios - that when a friend told it to me a decade ago - my whole approach to arpeggios became a lot more natural and easy, AND I sounded way better. 

  • When and in what parts of the songs it'll usually sound better if you'll use arpeggios instead of regular strums. 

  • You'll be able to write songs using the arpeggio technique - songs that'll be a lot more unique.

  • Learn the exact arpeggio patterns for songs ranging from Bob Dylan, Jeff Buckley, R.E.M and many other greats.

  • I will teach you a technique that I call the "Arpeggio Bass Stairways" - where you can add gorgeous, interesting transitions 9walk-ups & walk-downs) between the different chords of the song.

  • How to make your arpeggios "dirty", so you can add some power to the more intense parts of the song while still not playing the simple "down-down-up" kind of rhythm.

⭐ How would it feel like to finally be able to play perfectly in time when you are playing by yourself - and especially with other musicians...?

This course will be the single biggest improvement to the bottom line of your musicianship: how you sound like, and how fun it is to listen to you. (And for other musicians - how fun it is to play with you)

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Did you ever feel like your sense of rhythm is not good enough? That your playing feels "sloppy" in terms of time-keeping?

Maybe it was when you tried playing with other people, or when you were about to perform solo on stage and you noticed that you're always dragging or rushing through the chords? 

I think that most musicians do, and not only in the first years of playing. 

This course will be the end to this terrible, incompetent feeling.

It never ceased to amaze me how despite the fact that rhythm is the foundation of everything in music, we tend to focus and work so much on all the other sexy things, like playing complex solos, jammin' with songs with dozens of chords, playing multiple instruments, and yet we still forget to dedicate even a tiny bit of work to the foundation of everything - our rhythm!

When your rhythm is OFF and you're not groovin' with the song, everybody can sense it, even if not consciously. (non-musician listeners and fellow musicians alike) 

It'll simply not be pleasant either to listen to you, or to make music with you.

The good news are: working on your time keeping skills is the area that will give you the most fruitful "return on investment rate" of your time. 

It's not that hard to work on it, and it does not demand a lot of time when you practice, yet the rewards are the biggest since once you do work on it - everything else that you'll play will just sound WAY BETTER. 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

WELCOME to The Ultimate Sense of Rhythm & Time Course

In the course we will use an all-around approach (both intellectual and sensual) to hone your sense of rhythm and give it the love that it never received before.

The result: no matter what you're going to play - it will sound way better.

You'll also leave with the best practice routine to keep maintaining and improving your sense of time, and maybe even when you're playing a new percussion instrument of your choice!

Here are some of the lesson topics that we'll work on, and how you'll achieve that rock-solid sense of time you always wanted:

  • Introduction to How Rhythm Works and to The Metronome - Your Best Practice Buddy

  • The #1 Most Powerful Exercise to Immensely Strengthen Your Sense of Rhythm

  • How to Really GROOVE with a Song: Make Your Listeners Wanna DANCE!

  • 8 Quick Tips for Instantly Improving Your Time-Keeping

  • Learn Different Ways In Which the Biggest Jazz Legends Use to Tap Their Feet, to Let You Drastically Improve Your Time and Ingrain a Feeling for the Beat As a Result

  • An Introduction to 14 Different Affordable Percussion Instruments That You Can Play: Improve Your Rhythm While Adding a "New Role" to Play in Jams

  • Getting Familiar with Recognizing and Playing Advanced Time Signatures: 5/4, 3/4, 6/8, etc.

  • A FUN Alternative to the Metronome: An App That'll Be Your Own Personal Drummer

  • The Drumset for Non-Drummers: Getting to Know the Master Instrument of the Rhythm

  • How to FEEL the Bass: Really Listen to It and Connect with the Bassist and the Whole Rhythm Section

  • Introduction to Different Apps That'll Inspire You with New Rhythms From Around the World to YOUR Favorite Songs

  • Introduction to All the Professional Rhythm & Percussion TERMS (and Jargon) You Should Know to Communicate Rhythm Professionally with Other Musicians

  • What's the Vibrating Metronome? And How to Get Used to Such a Radical Way of Keeping Time

  • And more!

A better sense of time that you'll feel in every aspect of your music playing is guaranteed when you soak yourself in so much good stuff about rhythm. 

This course is the result of a year-long exclusive study on the subject of rhythm, designed to give every musician who will take it a much more steady and sturdy sense of time.

This course will teach you how to play any song with that cool style that Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer, and other greats, are constantly using.

It will also teach you everything about the technique of playing "thumb over" chords - which you can read more about right below.

If you observe ALL the biggest rock n' roll and blues guitar players of the last 50 years, you'll see a repeathing theme: they all use their THUMB to play the bass notes for most chords up the neck, and their thumb is almost always up there, helping them, and hanging above the fretboard - meaning that their hand is hugging the neck from both sides.

This, my friends, is proper professional guitar technique. 

But WHY? That's exactly what I asked myself as well, especially considering the fact that it was very hard for me at first to wrap my hand around the neck like all the masters do. 

So here's why:

  • When you're "hugging" the neck from both sides - your control over the guitar naturally becomes a lot better, and your playing becomes a lot more confident and clean. (in the "tight", good way - of playing only the notes that you meant to play)

  • When you play barre chords, your pinky finger would now be FREE - which means it will be able to play all those sexy "Hendrix chord embelishments" and riffs.

  • When you'll be standing up - this is a MUCH more comfortable and natural way to play - no more awkward barre chords that make your arm bend in weird angles. 

  • The "rock n' roll spanky" sound, developed by Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Frusciante, John Mayer and other masters - would now be unlocked to you, and I'll show you some first practical footsteps to take in that direction.

  • Many new chord shapes (that are especially useful for rock n' roll and blues) would now be "unlocked" for you.

  • Your lead guitar playing (improvising / playing melodies) will be much more clean since you'll be able to mute the unwanted strings.

  • And yes, you'll also look cooler (: - because that's how all the professionals play - and for a reason. 

The problem that I am especially here to address is that for many people - including me at first, this transition (to playing with the thumb hanging and helping from above) does not come naturally at all. 

I was totally sure that something is wrong with my hands or with my guitar - and that I just wasn't supposed to play with the thumb. Until I GOT it. 

So in the course, I will share with you a couple of excellent, and very simple exercises, that just by doing them for a couple of minutes every day - in no time you'll be playing all those chords with the thumb from above like a pro. 

These exercises are exactly what took me from that feeling of "this thumb thing isn't for me" to "this thumb thing feels so natural and my playing is now SO much more clean, fun and simply cool.

You won't believe how quickly this transition would come for you, and how natural and BETTER the guitar would feel in your hands.

And then, after we have the thumb "ready to go", in the second part of the course I will give you some of the best tips and tricks to start getting that "Hendrix" sound - the sound that influenced so many other masters that followed him since the late 60's until today. 

What we will talk about in the Hendrix / John Mayer section of the course:

  • What are the 4 INGREDIENTS of the Hendrix and John Mayer sound.

  • How to get that Hendrix / Mayer spanky GROOVE that they have in their rhythm playing.

  • How to add those cool Hendrixian riffs to funk up your songs and add a lot more interest. The signature of his style!

  • His favorite chord shapes, the ones that are the most comfortable to use with the famous riffs.

  • And more. But the most important thing is that I will teach you how to take some of their style and combine it into your own style, instead of sounding like a clone or a wannabe.

So get ready to have a lot more fun on the guitar, and to break that door right into the next level of guitar playing. 

On top of that, as a bonus, you will learn many more things (see below) that will be of a huge help along your guitar journeys, some of them really took me years to find out.

Why should you listen to me?

Hey! My name is Alon Cooper and I am 30 years old. I have been teaching music, both online and face to face, to tens of thousands of students in the last six years - while traveling four different continents and jammin' and performing with many different musicians. I am mainly a guitarist, pianist and harmonica player, and I also play other instruments including the flute, trumpet, bass and more. I am constantly looking for the best ways and shortcuts to teaching music effectively - and with FUN. The student feedbacks show that I do it very well. (:

My guitar blog, GuitarSongsMasters-com, (founded in 2014) where I share my tips for playing music, has a monthly readership of over 100K people from over a 150 different countries and is one of the world's top five most read guitar blogs*. I am also the founder of the Harmonica Jamz-com courses and blog that has been online since 2016 and has thousands of happy students here on Udemy.

30 day harmonica challenge. 

2 minutes a day only.

Do one lecture a day (just 2 minutes) and a little practice, and you will be playing ok after just one month. 

I know it sounds bonkers but that's what will happen if you follow the course and do a little practise.

Money back in 30 days if I'm wrong.

DO NOT take this course if you have already taken the 7 day challenge. No videos in this course are used in any other course. However, whilst all the teaching, approach, videos, and scheduling are different, both courses are for beginners so cover the same beginners basics so DO NOT take this course if you have already taken the 7 day challenge.

Take this course and play the harmonica instantly. No musical experience needed.

You will pick it up straight away without needing any music skills. This is easy to play and really fun to learn. You will be proud of your achievements and happy with the results.

'INSTANT HARMONICA' is a new series of courses where you learn one tune or technique per course. You will find it is taught in a friendly and encouraging manner and most importantly it is taught   v-e-r-y   s-l-o-w-l-y. 

Ben Hewlett is a very experienced music teacher who is able to be very patient and methodical. Each lecture will introduce you to the next group of notes – usually just 4 new notes and that's it.

This method is very easy for you to pick up the tunes as they are repeated over and over again until you have got it. You can even re-run the video if you find it useful.

Take one course and learn your favourite tune. The try another. Remember you can always get your money back if you wish but otherwise you have lifetime access to the course.

Imagine how amazing it will feel when you whip out your harmonica and play this tune – your friends and family will carry you shoulder high in triumph. Hopefully they don't carry you out of town and dump you in the river, but hey, swimming's good as well.

The health benefits of playing the harmonica are well documented – google it. Your lungs get exercised, your lung capacity increases, aerobic movement is good for you, playing music makes you smarter they say. 

You will have fun on your own and with your friends, and more oxygen to the brain will make you think you are having a good time so it's all good.

MY PERSONAL GUARANTEE - I AM SO CONFIDENT YOU WILL LOVE THIS COURSE THAT IF YOU DON'T, I WILL REFUND YOU ALL THE MONEY (within 30 days of purchasing) WITH NO QUESTIONS ASKED . THIS IRONCLAD GUARANTEE IS BACKED UP BY UDEMY.

If you ever wanted to learn to play the harmonica like Sonny Terry this new course is for you! Please enjoy the course and give it a review.

This course is all about learning to play in the style of Sonny Terry.

Many thanks to Wayne T. Helfrich for kind permission to use his pictures of Sonny Terry.

Each riff is written out for you with standard harmonica tab, onamatapoeic words, and standard western music notation.

You will find an mp3 included which has each riff played by me at full speed, half speed and medium speed to help you learn how to play it better.

If you do a couple of riffs a day this course will take a month to complete - or go for bust and do it in a weekend!

We start with learning 19 riffs that I wrote in Sonny's style as a preparation for you.

When you've done those follow through the sections and you may notice the challenge increases a little. Take it slowly and you will progress without too much pain!

This course is based on a book I wrote with Paul Lennon. I was recently teaching the whole book to a student in South Korea and enjoyed revisiting the origininal material we wrote and recorded in 2009 so much that I decided to make a Udemy course from it.

The whole book (30 pages) and audio (65 mp3 tracks) is included in this groundbreaking course a page at a time. The whole book and CD is also available if you message me.

A lot of people want to play the blues harp so if that's you come on in, you're in the right place.

I will hold your hand all the way through the videos with my 'infectious and humourous' (people tell me) style of teaching. You will feel like I'm right with you in a one to one lesson showing exactly you how to do it, and encouraging to to become confident and go it alone.

It's designed to be fun, friendly, easy for anyone to learn - even non-musical people! It is is designed to help you succeed and lead you on to the next in the series.

There are pdfs and mp3 downloads with many lectures so you can read the tablature and play along with the audio music written especially for learning harmonica.

Please be sure to visit the Questions area and Forum to interact with other students. It's a great way to learn more and helps you apply what the course gives you.

Thanks to Jan Persson for letting me use his Sonnyboy Williamson photo for this course. Google jan persson collection and look for american folk blues fest.

I have marked this course 'all levels' because even beginners will learn something about bending. I have met 'experts' who can't do this technique as well so I think anyone will benefit - even total beginners although I recommend taking the course listed below first please.

Recently I wrote a course on bending notes and it turned out to be part one of two. I only covered the first part of note bending and this new course here explores the other three types of bending. The original is called:

'The easy way to bend notes on HARMONICA - yes you can do it!'

In this new course we explore how to achieve blow bending, over blowing and over drawing.

I will show you how it works and how it's done.

Also why it's done.

It should at the very least start you off and open your eyes to the possibilities of advanced bending even if you don't manage all of it immediately.

How to practice your harmonica to get amazing progress fast!

In this course you are going to learn how to practice the harmonica in order to ramp up your skills to enable you to play with other people or on your own with much more confidence:

My system (make sure it is progressive):

1. Warm up - hahahoohoo (challenge yourself on speed and stamina), chugging, blues shuffle, trains (trumpet warm up)

2. Nuts and Bolts - one or two subjects a day - all techniques (make sure it is progressive)

3. Ear training - singing tunes, scales, intervals, improvising, recorded sound analysis, rhythms, random notes on two harps or more (if you can sing it you might be able to play it - otherwise not so much)

4. Repertoire - preparing and memorising progressively tricky/interesting tunes for performance

5. Fun - whatever fun is to you! And warm down

How, why, and when to practise your harmonica

Why is practice important in music?

A regular practice routine helps develop discipline, and aids in the development of music skills and better technique, fine motor skills and muscle memory. Students who practise regularly improve far more rapidly than those who practise sporadically.

Why should I practice my instrument?

Practice is the process of getting closer to achieving your musical goals. When we practice, we take elements of our playing that we find difficult, and play them carefully until they are easy. Once what you are practicing becomes second nature, playing your instrument becomes a lot of fun.

How can I learn music?

Practice playing chords, notes, and scales on your instrument. After you've mastered the concepts of notes, chords, and scales, learning how to produce these sounds with your instrument is the first step to learning how to play music. Start by practicing chords first, then move on to notes, and finally to scales.

What happens when someone practices a musical instrument?

Practice is the act of rehearsing a behaviour over and over, or engaging in an activity again and again, for the purpose of improving or mastering it, as in the phrase 'practice makes perfect'. ... Playing a musical instrument well takes much practice. It is a method of learning and of acquiring experience.

Totally different to my book/course '101 blues riffs' no crossover between the two.

There are licks written for the 'one' chord, the 'four' chord, and the 'five' chord. Not only that but we have intro riffs, ending riffs, turnarounds and transition riffs.

You will become more inventive, more fluid and more fun to listen to - get out of the Blues rut, enjoy your playing again now.

The more of these you learn the better player you will become.

Bluegrass Harmonica for you!

Learn The Orange Blossom Special the easy way. All the parts demystified and tricks revealed - including the harp swapping technique.

I'll give you all the tab and many backing tracks.

Have you ever come across a tune you can’t play? It’s too hard, too fast, too energetic…me too.

For me, the Orange Blossom Special is one of those.

However a student wanted to learn this so I set about preparing a course to make it possible for you to play this piece – and here it is.

In the course we go through the whole thing – except improvising, and I’ll do more on that soon.

You will be able to play the whole tune and also the chord section.

This is a Bluegrass or Country fiddle tune and one of my favourites played on guitar, banjo, fiddle, violin, and piano plus singing of course. I heard Charlie McCoy playing it in Germany a few years back and always wanted to make it available for my students!

Very often they will play in E using an E harp for most of the tune adding an A harp for the bridge.

Or F and Bb is another coupling.

The higher harps have shorter reeds and you can play faster with the enhanced response.

As most people have a C harp I’m using just that for this course. If you have an F (high or low) that would be the other harp in the couple.

This is a new way into BLUES!

Part 1.

HEADS

There are various heads (tunes) in blues and jazz where one riff is repeated three times to make the ‘head’, or in other words, the tune.

In this course you learn three of these, and I think they are easy, fun, and extremely useful.

When you know some of these heads you will be able to play a harmonica instrumental which makes you the soloist and the star of the band. Not bad.

Great for confidence, independence, and musicianship.

Part 2.

BASS LINES

In the second part of the course we will take a fresh look at learning to play some bass lines.

You will learn a bunch of classic bass lines and this will act as a massive structural support for your playing.

These famous bass lines work with the chords and rhythm plus they have their own melody.

This is a really good way to support your solos and your improvising.

Once you can feel the structure of the piece you can start to relax and improvise freely without any stress!

Note - I'm describing this as 'all levels' because everyone will get something from this. Much of the course will be fine for beginners but you will be challenged as you go on. If you can't bend yet just play everything without bending. Then study bending and circle round to do this again. The last two lectures (boogiewoogie) will challenge everyone so just a heads up.

Learn to play rhythm harmonica like the old guys did and use it like the young guys do.

This fox chase rhythm is tricky to learn as it uses the 3 blow in a way that you probably don't think about but it allows you to breathe and sustain the groove for ever. The tongue is used to move - just a couple of millimetres - to give you great economy of movement.

We will also use the split 4 embouchure so I'll show you how it works.

I'll show you a track I recorded a while back that uses this fox chase as a basis for improvising.

I think every harmonica player should know about this style of playing.

In this course we are using a simple tool to make all the tricky stuff do-able.

I've been teaching this for years to students of all levels and it REALLY works.

We are going to put tape (masking/builders/painters variety) on different parts of the harmonica to produce amazing results.

For example you will learn early on what happens if you put tape over the entire blow plate (closing ALL the blow reeds off) - you will find you can produce as many if not more notes that you could with no tape on it.

I have learnt so much using this system and I'm certain you will expand your knowledge and have fun exploring this new area of the harmonica.
