Great to hear there are more harp players out there. Some books may help, like I have one called 60 HOT LICKS FOR MARMONICA, by Lonne Joe Howell from Mel Bay publications. It has some cool stuff, but I just fake it! If it is something that I am trying to do just like the recording, then I practice, but for just jamming I try to duplicate certain artists or songs that I have heard. That is another thing, you have to listen to the harp being played. After you have mastered the harp it gets easier to "hear" how a certain lick is done... so I have heard.
It all boils done to this practice, practice, practice. Jam when ever you can get another musician, and teach someone else what you know so far...you will be amazed what you know already.

Harmonica thread, come forth!

Slow day at work, felt the need to chime in on this long, long silent thread.

I started my learning of the harmonica this year with a Hohner Special 20 Marine Band. Using harmonicalessons.com, davegage.com and harmonicaclub.com to get me started, and then getting loads of tabs from harptabs.com to find more stuff to play, it has been fun. I am certainly not ready to join a band with it, nor do I have any specific plans for it, except to just have fun.

On Christmas Day, my wife's family has asked me to play them a song or three. The mother-in-laws gift to me this year is a Lee Oskar in G that I picked out with her money.

I also picked up a Lee Oskar in C. I gotta say, I like the LO's over the Special 20. The sound is brighter and cleaner.

For the record, Christmas carols sound awesome on a G-diatonic Harmonica.
