For Total Beginners, and Worth a Look for the Self-Taught

Really Love Blues and Rock? Try Instant Blues Harmonica!


If you want my most comprehensive method for playing blues and rock music (but you'll still learn your first blues tune within minutes), try:

It's aimed especially at people who want to be able to improvise their own blues or rock music right away.

Like All Styles of Music?
My Three Minutes to Blues, Rock, Folk, Country, and Classical Harmonica covers it all (although if you only like Blues and Rock, you probably want Instant Blues Harmonica).
It's simple to use, and aimed at getting you up and playing in the style of your choice, right away. More folk and classical tunes (and a bit of country) than what is in Instant Blues Harmonica, but not as much depth or detail on playing blues and rock. I consider it a general "sampler" method for people who aren't sure of what style they'll want to end up focusing on. Try lots of different styles, then make up your mind!

Interested in Songs, Not Blues or Rock Improvisation?

The Pocket Harmonica Songbook is a complete beginner's method with lots of folk, classical, and blues songs. Some are easy enough to play right away, some will be challenging enough for intermediate level players. A good book to get if you only want to play songs that others will recognize. Not for those who want blues or rock improvisation, though.
