For INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED INTERMEDIATE players. A video tutorial focused on "Shuffling it Up, an original composition for blues harmonica by Adam Gussow of Satan and Adam.

Most harp players have some idea how to carry a shuffle groove in second position (cross harp), using chords in the lower octave. "Shuffling it Up" is something different: a first-position shuffle that holds down the groove by using tongue-blocking in the middle octave alternating with upper-octave blow notes and bends.

Technical challenges include lots of tongue blocking, some basic syncopation, and a couple of blow bends. Nothing faster than a dotted eighth note here; just the challenge--for most players--of an unfamiliar approach to the harmonica blues.

It is truly up to ones self. The tools are all here. I have a good amount of his material and for never having a lesson or so much as a live human to talk with discuss, this is the best I can imagine.
