Learn how to play solo harmonica tunes, chords, and train patterns
In this new course, besides beginner level students who are apt in playing either single notes or some chords on a harmonica, students of intermediate level will also learn to play the harp in a fun way - which is, actually, none other than accompanying their own selves - in other words, focusing entirely on 'Solo harmonica playing’.
As a matter of fact, one major privilege we get entitled to - as soon as we opt to play harmonica - is its capability of playing up to 10 notes simultaneously, and once we get to know a couple of simple but effective techniques, we are all set to play chords and melodies together, on it.
This form of playing is termed as 'Solo Harmonica' or 'Vamping'.
In this very course, we'll also focus on 'how to produce the sound of a train with a harmonica', owing to the fact that this type of execution is closely linked with 'Vamping'.
All of the exercises that you'll practice here gradually, in this series of lessons, will assist you to reach a level where you'll become capable of creating your own songs; by using different rhythms, styles of 'Chugging', and melodies.
Throughout all the six sections of this course, you'll study more than 50 vamping patterns, besides performing a complete tune of 'solo harmonica' along with a 'train song'.
If you are fortunate enough to generate notes with the bending technique, you might be able to make more complex yet interesting combinations, but what if you are unsuccessful in carrying out this all together? Don't worry! This course will enable you to play 'Vamping' whether you were unable to use the bent notes in the first place or you simply didn't want to execute it at all.
