I am a rookie, first harp at Christmas but progressing rapidly. I first used some online lessons, then bought a couple of books. The 2nd book I bought comes with a CD and has play along sections. You can hear what it is suppose to sound like, then play along. Short of a live human teacher, it's the best I know of. The book I am working in now is called Blues Harmonica for Beginners by William Lee Johnson, costs a whole $16 including the CD.
BTW, the only songs I have memorized are KumBaYa and a Beatles song called All My Loving. Hey Jude is pretty easy to learn too and they all sound good on the C harp.
I am concentrating on the Blues scale and riffs now since that is what I am interested in at the moment. I imagine there are other books with play along CD's that are good and am interested in what others have to say here too.
