Classic Chicago Blues Harp #1 is the second level lesson book in the Harmonica Masterclass Lesson Series. This book starts with more songs, exercises, and rhythm training, then leads you through a variety of bending techniques. You'll also learn many other more advanced techniques used by professional players, such as shakes, glissandos, breaks, and the different types of throat vibrato. This book will help you learn to use all of these techniques within a musical context. At the end of each chapter, you'll find review questions to help you make sure that you understood the main points covered. The D harmonica is used for most of the material in this book, but harmonicas in keys of A and C are also used.

  • February 06, 2008 Wish I'd got this ten years ago

    This book/CD filled in a lot of gaps in my technique and accellerated my understanding and ability exponentially; for years I'd hear other really good players and wonder how the hell they get certain sounds. Now I know. Wish I'd had this book ten years ago.
