Blues Harmonica – Bending & Beyond
by Steve Cohen
Book with online audio. Learn techniques used by the blues harmonica greats to build inspired 12-bar solos. Renowned blues harpist Steve Cohen explains and demonstrates: low and mid-register draw bends, high-register blow bends, double-stop bends, overblow bends, and warbles and various vibratos. Learning these expressive techniques and incorporating overblowing allows you to develop a more chromatic approach to 10-hole diatonic harmonica. Includes over 100 demo and play-along tracks online. Each track was recorded using a common C harp in 1st, 2nd and 3rd position, and all examples are presented in both harmonica tab and standard notation. 53 pp.
