Beginning Blues Harp (Harmonica) Reviews
Geez! What, does it cost A LOT to put tracks on a CD? The CD that accompanies this book is, that's right, one track. Yet the sections are really discreet lessons. That's annoying; I have to zip on search past the beginning every time I start and stop this CD.
I had this book almost ten years ago (it came with a cassette instead of a CD). I recently developed an interest in learning harp again and ordered this with the CD. Unfortunately all examples are progammed on one track which is pretty much no different than using a cassette. Actually worse because if you stop at example 33 on a tape and start the tape the next day you start at example 33. Since the CD has everything on one track you'll have to search for it. Way to go guys.... Does anyone else have this problem?
So you want to learn the Harmonica? Well look someplace else. This book is pants!!! It goes very quickly on to advanced techniques and stays there.
Don't be fooled by the title of Don Baker's book/CD, "Beginning Blues Harp". It is definitely not for absolute beginners. Don's teaching style on the included CD is excellent, it's just like having a private teacher right next to you. This book/CD concentrates on note bending, the essential technique for playing the blues. Each bent note is treated as a separate lesson, along with a little tune to play featuring that note. These exercises make the learning process quite enjoyable. It should take about a month or more of serious study to fully absorb this book.
