Dave plays notes on the chromatic harmonica. Then, you listen and identify the note he plays. Hard at first, but it gets easier the more you do it.

  • "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 systems. The "text tab" system is our default tab system for simple songs and harmonica parts where the timing is not included. The "arrow tab" system is used primarily for scales where the timing and music notation is included along with the tablature.

    The chromatic harmonica "arrow tab" system.

  • Use a standard 10, 12, or 16 hole chromatic harmonica- These songs require a standard 10, 12, or 16 hole chromatic harmonica, preferably in the key of "C". These tabs are written specifically for this type of harmonica, other types like diatonics, won't work. Chromatic harmonicas can be purchased through the Buy Harmonicas page at our Store.

  • Middle "C"- The tab below is for all standard 10 and 12 hole chromatics in the key of "C". Hole 1 blow on these instruments will be middle "C". Regardless of hole numbering, for all standard 16 hole chromatics in the key of "C", the fifth hole from the botton blow note will be middle "C". So, if the tab states to play a "1B", the equivalent note on the the 16 hole chromatic would be the fifth hole from the botton blow note. Therefore, you will need to adjust the tabs accordingly if playing a 16 hole chromatic.

  • Timing for the Tabs is not included- If you would like the complete music for piano (or guitar) with chords and timing included, you can visit our Store for song, tab, and "fake" books that include numerous artists and styles of music.
