This class is intended to introduce basic techniques, styles and approaches to the use of the harmonica in blues and folk music. Topics covered include: breathing, playing in both 1st and 2nd positions, bends, trills, tremolo, rhythmic comping and other effects. Students are required to bring at least one harmonica in the key of C, available in the SAMW store.  (I recommend buying a midrange or higher harp for maximum ease and fun.  Hohner blues harp, Special 20, or Lee Oskar.)
