Harmonica Lessons – Made Easy For The Beginner
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

So you’ve decided that you would like to learn how to play the harmonica, but you’re not sure whether you want to just buy a harmonica and try and learn on your own, or take a chance and purchase one of the many Harmonica Lessons that are available both on and off the Internet.

Trying to learn on your own is definitely an option, but this approach usually results in a lot of frustration, and eventually leads to giving up totally. In most cases, the reason for this is due to the fact that although you can eventually learn how to play bits and pieces of a few songs, you never learn all the proper techniques that are involved in playing this incredible instrument. This reason alone leads to many people abandoning their desire to learn an instrument that should be a lot of fun and somewhat easy to accomplish.

On the other hand, if you were to decide that learning how to play the harmonica was something you were going to take seriously, then purchasing one of the many Harmonica Lessons that are available would be the way to go. I say this from personal experience. Five years ago I was one of those guys that knew bits and pieces of some songs, but didn’t know too much more than that. After purchasing one of the lessons, it didn’t take me long to learn some techniques that seemed to bring it all together for me. I now rarely play my guitar without the accompaniment of my “G” harp.

There happens to be a lot of very good Harmonica Lessons available for you to choose from, and most of them are quite informative and easy to follow. Some are in the form of books, some are CD’s, some are books and CD’s and some are DVD’s. You get the picture. They are also priced very reasonably. Depending on which lesson you’re interested in, I’ve seen them for as little as ten dollars and never any more than forty dollars. Like I said, it all depends on what it is you are looking for.

Some of the things that these Harmonica Lessons will teach you are as follows:

  • Help you choose your first harmonica
  • Show you how to hold it
  • Show you how to keep it clean and working well
  • Teach you how to make sounds using your tongue, hands and throat
  • Teach you how to make that ever-popular wailing sound
  • Bend notes up and down
  • Work with a microphone to make even better sounds

This is just a few of the things that you will learn from these lessons. And once you get started, you are going learn a lot more than you can imagine. Before you know it, you will start developing your own style and be well on your way to playing lots of different styles, in many different keys.

A lot of the Harmonica Lessons require you to start with a harmonica in the key of “C”. You can pick one up for as little as five or ten dollars, so as you can see, learning how to play the harmonica is the furthest thing from expensive, and will bring you years of enjoyment.

So if you have been thinking about learning how to play the harmonica, and you want to learn in a fun and easy way, I strongly urge you to follow your dream and seriously consider checking out some of the harmonica lessons that are available to you.
