Blues harmonica lessons from the Bluesharp Page

So you want learn how to play blues harmonica?

There are lots of free harmonica lessons on the net, but here are a few lessons to get you started. They say you can learn the basic techniques for diatonic harmonica playing in about ten hours and that to an untrained ear, the only difference between a harp player who has been playing the harmonica for ten hours and a player who has been playing for ten years is the number of songs they know!

This may be over-simplification. You certainly don't learn how to improvise on the harmonica or how to play well with a group in ten hours. I know this from personal experience. However, we all have to start somewhere. That is the purpose of this page.
