Chromatic harmonica? It's fun, it's easy, and it sounds great right away! It's way easier to play blues and jazz on the chromatic than on the regular ten hole harmonica! The holes are bigger (so they're easier to “single out”). Better tone and lots of “blues notes” are built right into the chromatic, so you don't need to learn difficult tone effects before you sound good, like ten hole players do. You won't have to learn standard music notation! Most traditional chromatic harmonica methods require you to read useful but complex standard musical notation, filled with lines and spaces and strange little symbols. But this one sure doesn't! If you can count to 12, breathe in and out, and tap your foot, you'll understand the super simple notation system right away. You'll play your first blues in just 3 minutes! With this amazing pack, you'll skim a few pages of this book, listen to two tracks on the CD, and be ready to play your first simple but satisfying blues solo – after just three minutes of instruction! Then you'll go on to learn: blues and jazz scales (from the easiest ones to the hardest) • hot licks and solos (in the styles of the chromatic masters, from Little Walter to Toots to Stevie) • plus soulful songs, swingin' basslines, just enough music theory, improvisation strategy, and much more!
