Blues has always been the king of styles when we talk about harmonica, and what further reassures it is that it only occurs after listening to the blues music, that the yearning to learn to play this musical instrument gets instilled into most of us and even grows stronger.
As this course aims for beginners, therefore, in order to yield the blues we'll use the notes which we can play without bending; using the pentatonic scale. The backing track lies in the key of G, moreover, we're going to use a C harmonica and play in second position.
For jazzists and musicians, who strive to improve their improvisation skills, swing reserves a special place among other renowned music. Jazz improvisation is a little tougher, though, than blues improvisation, but jazz has proven effects on boosting someone's improvising skills, making it evidently true if one happens to be a blues harp player. We will learn 4 swing licks and combine them into a ii-V-I jazz chords progression; a common sequence to jazz harmony often used to train improvisation. The key is G and we'll play in second position using a C harp.
Funky music is well known for its rhythm component. As a harmonica player, we can steal a lot from this musical genre to learn and incorporate into our playing. The funky D minor track will be used to combine the 4 funky licks. We'll play in 3rd position with a C harmonica.
As you will experience it yourself; i.e. learning with 'listen and repeat' approach is really valuable and joyous ; the use of the audio and visual metronome not only helps you keep up the tempo, but also enables you to equip yourself with just the right skills to perform later on the backing tracks or with a band.
