Raw Beginners Start Here!.mov
If you were my private student and you arrived for your first lesson having just purchased (or been given) your first harmonica, I would spend much of that first hour showing you the things I show you here. The difference is this: a private lesson would cost you $60. This video costs you $4. I take apart the harp and give you a quick-hit lesson on how it's put together. I show you how to make single notes with the proper embouchure (mouth-shape). I show you the two ways that the majority of pro harp players hold the harp. I teach you a basic diatonic scale in the key of C, and I give you another exercise that will help familiarize you with every hole on the harp. I help you troubleshoot the problems that crop up when raw beginners try to play an ascending or descending series of notes involving multiple holes. I also give you a sample of my own playing.
In short, I do my best to frame the fundamentals in the clearest and most accessible way possible; to set priorities that can guide your future development; and to inspire you.
Harp key: C
Note: Unlike the great majority of the video tutorials available at Modern Blues Harmonica, this video has NO corresponding tab sheet.
Running time: 48:53 (long!)
