DIATONIC HARMONICA
Each harmonica is designed in a certain "key". When using the harmonica in that
stated "key" it is called standard or straight harmonica, such as the C harmonica is
the key of C, the G harmonica is the key of G and the F harmonica is the key of F,
etc. This also means that the center or "home" tone is the fourth hole of the diatonic
harmonica. Each different key requires a different harmonica. You may be able to
use any key harmonica in this book if you observe the numbers and arrows written
below each musical line. Normally you would use the C harmonica for this book.
In playing straight harmonica, the method for blocking out unwanted tones is called
"tongue blocking". Your tongue should cover and block off two or three undesired
holes on the left of the harmonica mouth piece:
5 6 7 8 9 10
Tongue blocks 2 or 3 holes.
The hole on the right (4) sounds.
To be able to "chord" with melody, just release the tongue covered holes and a chord
(3 or more tones together) will be produced.

CHROMATIC HARMONICA
The use of the slide button will give accurate half-step tones on the chromatic harmonica.
The 12 or 16 hole chromatic harmonica have been notated in this book. A change of
octaves becomes necessary for variety and ease of playing. (All octaves on the chromatic
harmonica are the same, except the tones are higher or lower in pitch. )
Circled number
 means,
Slide in

Same tone but different octave on harmonica
Slide out

EXAMPLE: same notational level

FOR FURTHER INFORMATIONabout chromatic harmonica refer to:
Mel Bay's Complete CHROMATIC HARMONICAMETHODby
Phil Duncan.
CROSS-HARP
The method for cross-harp is to cross over to hole 2 of the diatonic 10 hole harmonica
and draw. This tone becomes (hole 2) the "key" center or "home" tone and changes the
"key" in which the harmonica plays. Therefore, C harp plays cross-harp (blues harp)
in the key of G. (G is the draw tone in hole -2) F harp plays cross-harp in the key of C.
(C is a draw tone in hole 2 of the F harp) If the music is in the key of C use the F harmonica.
The cross-harp technique allows for half step tones not normally played on the
diatonic harmonica. All draw tones should begin below the pitch: 5 then rise quickly
to pitch level.
To achieve the half steps or more, a blues technique called bending is used.
Notational information:
 = half step
down
f= whole step down ~ = whole step and a half
Octave changes need to take place for ease of playing. The numbers will dictate the changes:
Same written pitch but
different sound pitch level.
