Synopses & Reviews
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 Complete Idiot's Guide RM to Guitar and Drums have both performed well — 67,500 and 33,500 copies sold respectively.
The Complete Idiot's Guide RM to Playing the Harmonica will be the ultimate learning text for the aspiring harpist (as harmonica players are called). 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.
The harmonica is one of the most traditional musical instruments in America. Millions are sold each year, but there are few high quality, comprehensive instructional manuals for new harmonica players. This bestselling book has been completely updated, with dozens of new songs and a professionally mastered audio CD.
