Publisher Comments:

With The Complete Idiot's Guide RM to Playing the Harmonica, you, too, can learn to play the harmonica like a professional musician!

-- This book will teach the beginner the fundamentals of a variety of musical forms-blues, rock, jazz, bluegrass, and more.

The reader will learn to play the harmonica in three bsic stages — beginner, intermediate, and advanced, with a heavy emphasis on actual practice exercises. The book will emphasize blues, rock, bluegrass, folk, and jazz; it is designed to appeal to the broadest possible cross section of players. Additional chapters will cover purchasing the best harmonica for you, harmonica maintenance, the art of playing with other musicians, and profiles of master harpists.
