Which are the benefits of learning to play harmonica in different music genres? To answer this question, I will list for you what every music genre can bring.

Let's start with a rock! Rock songs, specifically the heavy rock songs, are euphonious: i.e., they're pleasing to your ears, in the minor mode. That's why I suggest you listen to this music style and learn to play licks in 3rd and 5th positions on it.

The Bluegrass music: Rhythm back up instruments: bass, guitar, mandolin, provide basic rhythm. For all practical purposes, Bluegrass music emphasizes the "off-beat". As an example, in a song with a 4/4 time signature, the acoustic bass will play on beats one and three. Whereas, the guitar and mandolin will play on beats two and four. Bluegrass is an excellent way to learn to play fast on harmonica.

Swing style: Playing in a swing style is more than playing eighth notes with a triplet feel. Even if articulations are marked, it is critical to listen to swing music, to understand how to perform this particular phrasing style. With jazz and swing, you can learn to improvise very well.

Pop music: I like to play harmonica in many styles, with pop music or with modern genres to get the advantage of this instrument to its full – if you know how to deal with those. You learn to emulate a singer to create phrasing.

Country music: Over the subsequent century, country music has evolved into a vibrant commercial genre that maintains allegiance to concepts of tradition and rusticity, even as the music continues to reflect the modernization and urbanization of its audience. Learning the country is another great way to learn how to create beautiful licks, fast or slow.

The Reggae style: Reggae is played in 4/4 time because the symmetrical rhythmic pattern does not lend itself to other time signatures such as 3/4 time. One of the most easily recognizable elements is the off-beat rhythms and staccato chords. Learning to play this style of music would improve and expand your rhythm knowledge.

6 Swing Licks, 5 Country Licks, 14 Rock Licks, 6 Reggae Licks, 11 Blues Licks, 6 Pop Licks, 7 Bluegrass Licks.
