Written by Alex Paclin on . Posted in Blog: Harmonica Articles, Harmonica Lessons

Hi everybody! In this tutorial I made a big accent on the sound and the nuances Little Walter uses. Here we go through the intro which is a repeated pattern and the solo. The tabs for it are down below.

Here’s the tabs for Mellow Down Easy, how it is on the record. In another case you can just repeat the last phrase four times.

-2 -2” -2 -2” -1 -1’ -1 -2 -2” -2 -2” -1 -2
||: -2 -2” -2 -2” -1 -2 -2” -1 -1’ -1 -2 -2” -2 :||x3

And the solo.

-2 -3 -4 -4’ -4 -4’ -2
-2 -3 -4 -4′ -4 -4’\ -2 -2
-8 7 -7 -6 6 -5 5 -4\ -2 -2 -2” -2 -2
[-5-6]-trill 5 -4 4 -3’ -2 -1 -2” 1 -2

-1 -2” -2 -34’ 4 4 -4 -4’\ -2 -2 -1 -2” -1
-2 -3 -4 -4’ -4 -5 -4 -4’\ -2 -1 -2” -1 -1’ -1 -2 -1 -2”
-4 -4 -4’ -4 -4 -4 -4’ -2 -2

Hope that you’ll find it useful. Remember that after learning it you don’t have to play it exactly like this, I encourage you to make variations, based on this style.

Peace out 😉

      I know it’s a bummer but unfortunately we don’t have control over these copy write issues, but try a google search and possibly you can find the video elsewhere. jp
