First Lessons Blues Harmonica is an exciting course for the beginning blues player. The ideas presented are solidly in the blues tradition with great sounding bluesy licks to play, even at the beginning level. Topics include phrasing concepts (how small pieces of music, called licks, are organised to create a pleasing solo), 12 bar blues theory, vibrato, shakes, and tongue blocking.
The recording includes all of the Harmonica parts notated in the book with accompaniment. This book and its recording use a C major diatonic Harmonica.
