This book will give you a jump-start in playing blues harmonica, and is designed to get you started playing the blues. Due to the nature and length of this book (only 24 pages), and to avoid repetition of sections of other books by David Barrett - some of the more common place blues harmonica techniques are avoided here. A 10-hole D harmonica is required to begin this book, but a Lee Oskar natural minor harmonica in the key of A minor is also recommended. All tunes and exercises in this book are written in standard notation with harmonica blow/draw indications. Although this is not a beginner's book, the enclosed CD recording provides an additional assist to players at all level.
