An exciting beginning blues harmonica course! The ideas presented are solidly in the blues tradition with great sounding bluesy licks to play, even at the beginning level!

The recording includes all of the harmonica parts notated in the book with accompaniment. This book and its recording use a C major diatonic harmonica.
