Let's continue our work with the harmonica and focus on the Blues. The harmonica's unique sound is integral to the distinctiveness of many great blues bands. Learn some techniques and styles of background and lead playing. We will work on songs by Slim Harpo ("Something Inside Me," "Raining In My Heart"), Little Walter ("Last Night," "Hoochie Coochie Man"), Sonny Terry ("Bring It On Home To Me"), etc. Note: if you haven't taken "Beginner's Harmonica for Adults," please let us know at registration so the instructor can contact you prior to the first class to determine if this course is appropriate for you.
