Product Overview


John Sebastian, one of the most beloved performers, songwriters and harmonica players of our time, teaches all the basics in this friendly, Homespun Harmonica Masters video tutorial series.

You’ll start by learning how to hold the instrument and play your first notes using both the “straight” scale and the blues “cross-harp” mode.

Before long you’ll be getting the sounds that the pros get, like vibrato, note-bending, wah-wahs, tonguing, rhythm playing, train effects and a variety of great licks and solos that you can use either as a soloist or in a band.

This video series lays down your solid foundation for more advanced study. Even if you already play you’ll want to take advantage of the expertise of this veteran performer and recording artist.

You’ll even get to jam along with some great rhythm grooves by Conan O’Brien Band guitarist Jimmy Vivino. By the end of this tutorial collection John sits out a few while you take over the solos. You’ll soon be blowing blues, rock and country harp with the best of them… Watch it today!
