Here's brilliant way to get better at the harmonica. You don't even have to think. You can do it with your eyes closed.
Listen to me and copy. Or listen to me and do the opposite. Or ignore me - just play in the gaps.
This is just one way of improvising - there are many ways, and most involve a lifetime study. Which is the right way to do it unless you are too busy, in which case this method is a different way in.
So take a look and see if it will help you.
If you have a tune or subject that you would like me to teach please message me.
