: Anyone know where I can get the song Dixie in a beginners lesson?
Here's a beginner lesson for you-- tab it out yourself. It's not that tough, and you'll learn so much more than how to play the song.
I'll give you this much. You are going to play a melody. Melodies are generally first position, which means playing mostly blow notes in the middle of the harp. Start there. Find the beginning note--it will sound "right". Whistle the tune out loud or in your head, then decide if the next note is higher or lower. Use the harp to find the next note (more than likely it will be just a step or two away).
You will find this frustrating for about 10 minutes, then it will come more easily. Most songs repeat phrases, so once you figure out a section, look for a similar pattern. Good luck--you can do it.
