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.
