: I'm a Self Taught diatonic player and now i'm trying the chromatic.
: I bought a Hohner Koch Harmonica 10 holes and i need info on how to master it, sites with tablatures...etc.
: I'm learning to play Beatles Song "Michele" but anything can help me to know more about it.
Learn to read music. If you already understand the tab system for harmonica, you're already off for a great start. If you have a basics of reading both standard music and harmonica tab, then pick up some sheet music of the music of your liking and then add the tab symbols beneath the notes.
There are several reputable books on how to play the harmonica. One of many, which I recommend, is "The Right Way To Play The Chromatic Harmonica" by James Reilly. My copy was published by Hohner London. I picked it up while I was stationed in Scotland. Perhaps I'll send another reply with more recommended texts. Study, practice, practice and have fun.
Wishing you success in your endeavors.
