dog harmonica Many a good harmonica player has blasted away at one of our jam nights and are still playing in bands formed via the club today, so for all our harpin' friends out there we have provided harmonica resources, a small selection of free harmonica tabs and lessons, Books for beginner to intermediate level and of course links to great harmonica sites.

For those unfamiliar with the Harmonica it is a small handheld instrument made of metal that is played by blowing and sucking air through small holes containing a number of fine reeds that move back and forth. This vibrates the reeds inside producing a variety of notes and sounds.

A Chromatic Harmonica has two sets of reeds that are tuned to a diatonic scale of C major and C sharp major, when one scale is in use, a spring device activated by a button blocks off the other scale.  The harmonica's range varies from 3 to 4 octaves depending on it's size and can be purchased in different keys.

  • Wet Dog Blues - Harp Radio
    "I'm now studying Blues Harp, and I thought one of the best ways to totally immerse myself in the instrument was to host a Blues show and play harp songs exclusively.

Listeners are free to email me and I will read their emails on the air in real time. *Also, I will take requests."
