About This Lesson
Welcome to Blues Harmonica Blueprint. This video course is designed to help you bring your harmonica playing to another level, whether you’re a beginning player or an experienced one. We’ll cover chord rhythms, hand effects, single notes, cross harp, blues scales, bending, articulation, rhythmic chording, tongue-blocking, vibrato and solo phrasing, always emphasizing the core concepts of rhythm and tone.
This course comes complete with animated graphics, tabbed-out exercises and 12-bar solos, and full-length play-along jam tracks. These classic Chicago, Texas and Swamp Blues feels were recorded with a 5-piece band featuring the great Paul Rishell and Troy Gonyea on guitars.
This video will bring you closer to realizing your harmonica goal, whether it’s being able to play a melody, improvise over a 12-bar blues, comp rhythms, learn solos in the style of blues masters Little Walter, Big Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin’ Wolf or Jimmy Reed, or just find out where the good sounding notes are. All you need is a C harp and a desire to learn.
