Hey, thanks for stopping by. I'm "Blue Barry" Faust. Friends just call me Big Blue or Bluzman. I've been teaching folks how to play harmonica for many years and I believe that anybody, with practice, patience, and the right instruction can learn to play blues-style harmonica or "blues harp".
These harmonica lessons are my own methods that have worked well over my many years of teaching. These lessons will help you focus on making that bluesy sound the harmonica is so famous for.
Whether you are an absolute beginner who's never so much as touched a harmonica, or maybe you've tried to play at some point without much success, or even if you're pretty good and simply want to improve, you've found the right place.
If you want to learn to play blues harp you will need a basic 10-hole harmonica in the Key of A. The harmonica is very often used to accompany the guitar for playing Blues in the key of E. This is the best key of harmonica to learn play, and it's the one you'll need for these instructions. Be sure to ask for a Major Diatonic harp in the Key of A.
