On this page, you'll find fifty famous and beautiful songs to play on harmonica. For each of them, you'll find the audio clip. For some of the songs, a full lesson is available with videos and tabs. – use the appropriate link to get to the lesson page.
I have personally played all the songs listed and decided to perform them in a freer way, choosing for each how much to stick to the original melodies; in some cases, you’ll find variations of the main theme as well as some improvisation. The purpose of this page is to give you some great ideas about how to play any song you like, whether it’s a harmonica song, or one that doesn’t involve harmonica but that you want to use to reproduce the vocals or any other instrument.
Some of these songs are easy, and beginner player can grab their harmonica and have fun playing them in a few minutes, the intermediate harmonica players can try my enhanced versions, and the improvisation they'll find with most of the tunes.
More songs will be added on these pages every week, so stay tuned and enjoy learning with the best music of the last century!
