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"), etc.

Notes:

Bring a 10-hole diatonic key of C major harmonica (such as the Hohner Special 20, Hohner Marine Band Model 1896, or equivalent) to first class. Required text may be purchased for $9.00 from the instructor the first night. (Optional: bring a digital recorder or some other recording device.) (Note: This class is for people who have taken Harmonica For Beginners or others who have acquired similar skills and knowledge and have Seth's permission to take the class.)"
