Many harmonica instruction methods teach single note lip pursing as the very first item. To my mind, that is putting the cart before the horse. A harmonica is first of all a chordal instrument. Play any group of adjacent holes anywhere on the harp, either on the blow or draw, and you have a chord.
For further study, among the best players to list to is John Lee Williamson, or Sonny Boy I. His whole style is worth some deep study, as it really is the foundation of modern playing. I’ll be creating some blog posts on Sonny Boy I .. so keep a look out for them.Topics and/or subjects covered in this lesson:
