Learn 'crossharp' (2nd position) for a down home blues feel!

Most recorded harmonica blues is in 2nd position so you HAVE to understand it to sound good. We study 5th position also.

2nd and 5th positions are relatives so we will study them both in this amazing new course.

As you probably know there are 12 positions in harmonica playing. I have done courses on 1st and 3rd so now we tackle the next two important positions in this course.

What are the requirements?

  • You need nothing for this course - just a harmonica - 10 hole diatonic in the key of C

What am I going to get from this course?

  • understand more about positional play and how handy a skill it is
  • learn how to play in the bluesy 2nd position
  • learn how to play 5th position in a bluesy way
  • learn how to play 5th position in a belly dance groove
  • have fun knowing how to play the harmonica better

What is the target audience?

  • This course is for beginners who can play single notes; you don't need much musical experience, I'll walk you through the whole thing very slowly step by step. If you are an advanced player you will cover the whole thing very fast and you may find it is too slow for you

If you have a tune or subject that you would like me to teach please message me.

Take this course and play with the positions instantly. No musical experience needed.

You will pick it up straight away without needing any music skills. This is easy to play and really fun to learn. You will be proud of your achievements and happy with the results.

'INSTANT HARMONICA' is a new series of courses where you learn one tune per course. You will find it is taught in a friendly and encouraging manner and most importantly is it taught v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y.

Ben Hewlett is a very experienced music teacher who is able to be very patient and methodical. Each lecture will introduce you to the next group of notes – usually just 4 new notes and that's it.

This method is very easy for you to pick up the tunes as they are repeated over and over again until you have got it. You can even re-run the video if you find it useful.

Take one course and learn your favourite tune. The try another. Remember you can always get your money back if you wish but otherwise you have lifetime access to the course.

Imagine how amazing it will feel when you whip out your harmonica and play this tune – your friends and family will carry you shoulder high in triumph. Hopefully they don't carry you out of town and dump you in the river, but hey, swimming's good as well.

The health benefits of playing the harmonica are well documented – google it. Your lungs get exercised, your lung capacity increases, aerobic movement is good for you, playing music makes you smarter they say.

You will have fun on your own and with your friends, and more oxygen to the brain will make you think you are having a good time so it's all good.
