100 EASY BLUES HARMONICA LICKS (41 Pages)

The purpose of this book is to bring to the beginners and confirmed harmonica players an encyclopedia of licks from witch they can learn and use while improvising alone or with a band. The great harmonica players often mixed spontaneous original ideas with well known licks to create new solos. Most of the time licks and riffs are “borrowed”, adapted and changed into new ones. It is rare when someone comes up with a totally fresh approach without relying on the tradition meaning blues phrases, riffs and scales. The following licks were inspired by musical improvisations of blues legends such as Junior Wells, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Little Walter, Big Walter Horton, James Cotton, Howlin’ Wolf and Jean-Jacques Milteau. 100 Easy Blues Harmonica Licks will work with any 10 hole diatonic harmonica in the key of C.
