Leaning to Play in “Minor” Positions
In this class we will learn how to play minor music (as opposed to major) in five different
positions (keys) on one harmonica. We’ll learn to understand when, why and how to choose
a particular position for any particular minor song.
We’ll also learn a minor song(melody) and a solo in these 5 positions.
A Pentatonic Approach For The Harmonica
I like to tell my students that if they learn nothing else but the pentatonic and blues scale
along with some associated licks and patterns, they will probably be able to jam along very
competently on any folk, rock, blues or bluegrass song or jam session that they encounter.
In this class we are going to dig into the five note pentatonic scale for the harmonica.
We will learn licks, patterns and approaches to jamming with this simple yet profound scale.
The Blues Scale
Patterns, exercises and licks will be taught to help assimilate
these all important six notes into all of your playing.
12th Position
What is it? When and how to use it. Patterns ,licks and exercises to help you get going.
We will also learn a swing version of a harmonica standard using this position.
Learning To Play in 1st Position
(you’ve got to be kidding  I did that years ago when I first started)
Not kidding. We’ll learn way more than you thought possible in this position,
including blues, jazz/swing, bluegrass and even some ethnic music.
Approaching Jazz and Swing
This class will focus on an approach to learning, understanding and playing one of
the most crucial components to playing jazz/swing on the harmonica, the 2-5-1 progression
. Specifically, 2-5-1 licks and patterns in a few different positions.
What is it? How to do it? How to use it? along with assorted overblow licks in assorted positions.
