BEYOND THE ESSENTIAL BLUES SCALE PDF+AUDIO
Priced at 13€, this study material is designed for intermediate harmonica players wishing to extend their vocabulary in major blues. It deals with blues scales in particular and offers another way of practicing to get accustomed to and acquire new vocabulary with a new perspective on improvisation. You will learn and practice blues scales in many different keys, use more blues scales over the blues progression, extend the blues scales to make your improvisation more interesting, accommodate yourself to overblows and gradually understand how to incorporate them into your playing, and study three solo transcriptions. While based mostly around the second position playing, the material covers more than this topic and encourages players to apply the theory to other keys/positions as well.

APPROACH NOTES EXERCISES FOR DIATONIC HARMONICA PDF
Priced at $10, this advanced resource material is designed for all harmonica players who would like to improve their technique and theoretical knowledge. The e-book contains 8 exercises for practicing approach notes in context – bebop scales, chord triads, chromaticism, enclosure, scale patterns, or fourths. Practicing unfamiliar material poses a challenge to all players and can serve as a source of new creative ideas. All exercises are written both in notation and harmonica tabs and in all keys where appropriate.
Priced at $10 This study of 30 lines over 2-5-1 progressions shows how to build smooth and easy-to-execute fast runs on the diatonic harmonica. The approach discussed in this learning material uses arpeggios. I will focus on 7 different keys/positions that are easy to arpeggiate due to their proximity to harmonica’s key centre and show ways how to harmonically extend the diatonic scale arpeggios. The book contains notation and harmonica tabs and each example comes with a short explanation of what is going on in the line. By learning the principles of creating such lines you will be able to create your own variations even for the remaining 5 keys. It’s up to you how deep you dive. Overbends required.
The album features diatonic harmonica in surprising musical situations veering off the safe path of blues towards jazz, latin, rockabilly, and some other weird stuff.
