Let's continue our work with the harmonica and focus on the Blues. The harmonica's unique sound is integral to the distinctiveness of many great blues bands. Learn some techniques and styles of background and lead playing. We will work on songs by Slim Harpo ("Something Inside Me," "Raining In My Heart"), Little Walter ("Last Night," "Hoochie Coochie Man"), Sonny Terry ("Bring It On Home To Me"), and more. Use a 10-hole diatonic key of C major harmonica (such as the Hohner Special 20, the Hohner Marine Band Model 1896, or equivalent).  After the first class, the required text may be purchased from the instructor for $10 and will be emailed to you as an attachment.  Please print it for class use.
Fee: $122.00
