"Blowing in the Wind"- A folk anthem from the mid-1960's. Take your time and go as slowly as needed to play clean single notes. Once you have the song memorized, try adding some slides and dropoffs in addition to some hand tremolo on the longer held notes at the end of phrases.

  • "Tabs" (or Tablature) defined- Tabs are a simplified way to notate harmonica solos, harmonica parts, melodies and songs, without having to formally read music. Directly below is an example of our tab system. Additional general info about "tabs" is found on the Songs & Tabs main page.

  • Start with the "Major Scale" or "Mary Had a Little Lamb"- If you find this song difficult, pick a very simple song (or better yet, the "Major Scale") and slowly read and play through it 3-5 times to get a feel for the melody. We're not going for perfection yet, we just want the melody to be recognizable.

  • Commit it to memory- Once you've accomplished the above, look away from the song and then try to do it from memory. When you have committed it to memory, slow down and focus on your basic techniques. Play it correctly as many times as you can before moving on.



Additional songs are available in the Songs & Tabs section. The "Kids Songs", "Holiday Songs", and "Folk/Campfire" are especially good for those just starting out. Gain access to many more songs in the Members Area.
