If you can breathe, you can play rhythm harmonica!

We will explore basic technique to get a full sound, and then together blow the rhythms for reels, jigs, polkas, waltzes, folk, and Bo Diddley beats... and whatever other rhythms may come up. All you have to do is show up with a G major diatonic harmonica (no other keys accepted!)... and no prior experience is necessary!All you have to do is show up with a G major diatonic harmonica (no other keys accepted!)... and no prior experience is necessary!
