: Yes take a look at my post "very useful learning tool"
: : I wondered if anyone else out there has found that not only finding free stuff to play is virtually impossible , but finding anything thats not 100 years old is even harder, I have recently come back from a camping trip with 2 friends who play the accoustic guitar. Free modern tunes fall from the net like leaves from a tree. sadly it seems autumn has decided not to come for the harmonica player. has anyone got any ideas.

If you know how to read music, then there is a lot of material out there. If you already know how to read, then learn how to transpose music from awkward/unfamiliar keys to the easier keys.
Web sites and the shelves of the library provide an alternative to parting with cash.
Another great source of material can be found behind the church pews. Hymnals contain some excellent music which is very much suitable for the harmonica.
My suggestions don't end here...
Write your own tablature beneath the music.
Wishing you success in your endeavors.
