    Thanks so much for the free the free Christmas music. I have the dbl 24 key harmonica too that I would like to learn how to play. I would like to learn how to play “You Raise Me Up” by Josh Groban, if you can get that on for some free harmonica songs next time.

    I stumbled on this popular song by Billy Joel called “And So It Goes”. It looks a little intimadating at first but I learned and memorized it in about 4 days. I beleive the reason for the good success was because all the notes are in the 4567 holes. (THE SAFTEY ZONE)!!! This song is a great confidense builder I recommend every one to try it. AWSOME SONG!!! It should be on your list.

    I’m only a beginner myself but im loving it.

    I find the best way to learn a new song is to listen to it (look it up on youtube) and get very familiar with it. then you’ll find it way easier to play.

    im learning Piano man (billy joel) at the moment. fantastic song!!

    Keep on harping people!

    Hi,

    I was introduced to a harmonica a few weekends ago and I fell in love with it’s sound. I have now baught a Swan 16 hole -c Key harmonica. It has no numbers on it for me to know what keys to play. I do feel so lost. Help!
    Did I go wrong with buying this product? From witch end do I play the instrument?

    Thanks
    Quintin

    Folk singers like Dylan, Guthrie, bluesman like Mayall, Mccoy, rockers like Jack Bruce, and my favorite Will Scarlett with Hot Tuna and Papa John Creach on fiddle without mention.

    Stairway to Heaven does not compare to When the Levee Breaks or Bring it on Home concerning the harmonica playing.
