Harmonica Mini-Course: Learn How to Play Songs
What you'll learn
- You will learn 4 principles of getting a beautiful, full sound out of the harmonica.
- You would start exploring the concept of "jammin" - and you'll play your first harmonica solos.
- You would learn the basics of music theory, in a way that's tailored to harmonica players.
- You would practically be creating music with different backing tracks in different styles, and learn how to accommodate each one with your playing.
- A harmonica in the key of C. Other than that - no previous experience is needed.
The harmonica is a much easier instrument than how it might look like.
In this course - I will teach you how to get a beautiful sound out of the harmonica, and then - you will learn how to play your first 3 songs on it.
Using these tools - you can then look up the harmonica tabs and play your own favorite songs - and just like that, you've unlocked an awesome new skill in life.
The 3 songs I picked are not just especially beautiful, but also are great to learn as a beginner - since each one of them would make you a "rounder" player - and work on different parts in your playing:
Louis Armstrong - What a Wonderful World
Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah
Bob Dylan - Knocking on Heaven's Door
Get ready to explore - I will see you inside!
