How to use 1 harmonica to play 2 tunes in 3 positions/keys
How to play tunes with very different approaches using 1 harp to play 2 tunes in 3 keys and also 3 harps/2 tunes/1 keyWatch Promo to get a sneaky peek!
Here you will learn a couple of simple tunes - When the Saints and Oh Suzanna, BUT there's a big difference in the ways you can play these songs.
All played on a 10-hole diatonic in the key of C
You will learn how to play:
- Each song in C - First position middle register (holes 4-6) with single notes and also chords/splits
- Each song in C - First position upper register (holes 7-10) with single notes and also chords/splits
- Each song in C - First position low register (holes 1-4) with single notes and also chords/splits
- Each song in G - Second position middle register (holes 2-6) with single notes and also chords/splits
- Each song in G - Second position upper register (holes 6-10) with single notes and also chords/splits
- Each song in D - Third position in all registers with single notes and also chords/splits
You will also learn how to play the same song constantly in the same key (C) BUT playing on three different keyed harmonicas (C, F, Bb) using three different positions. Confused? Yes, so was I until I explored this subject.
