Do you want to play with your favourite music, or with a band?
So do I. That's why we play music.
But it can be a jungle - what do we do? What key is the music? Which harmonica to use?
Here I will give you seven precise paths through that jungle in this course and also five directional signposts to help you.
After this you should have a good handle on basic improvising on the C harmonica in all 12 keys.
You can also transfer all this to all the other 11 keys of diatonic harp as well so it's gold dust!
So watch the free 10 minutes and see if you think you will benefit.
