: I've been playing for a few months now.....things are coming together pretty well(except for note bending) and I've been starting to jam with taped music in the car. The Blues improv section on this site talks about the 12 bar progression and just playing along with a matching note on the harp. If the progression's an ADE chord--you'd just play those notes on the harp to match the 12 bar progression...... I'm getting a good feel for doing that. Although what I'm playing isn't part of the actual song--it sounds OK with it.
: My question is....where to from here.....what can I
: do to get away from just blowing single notes through the measure???...............thx--Dave
I've been playing about 8 months. I'm not buying into the whole "pick up a harp and start improvising". Do you know anyone who's just starting to learn guitar who just pick's it up and just starts improvising? I suggest a good methods book where you can learn some blues riffs (there are some good riffs on this site) and some easy 12 bar blues songs (all tabbed out). I'm using "Instant Harmonica Method by David McKelvy.
