Around twenty percent of your playing time on the bandstand is spent soloing – have you studied how to play during the other eighty percent? Blues Harmonica Accompaniment Playing, within the School of the Blues Lesson Series, is an exciting journey into the art of traditional blues harmonica accompaniment (playing fills, under vocals and chording patterns) as well as modern approaches to playing horn, organ and bass lines. Additional studies cover openings, breaks and endings.
The fifth book in the School of the Blues Lesson Series is full of invaluable lessons and exercises for the player who wants to get the best out of playing with a band. By David Barrett.
Blues Harmonica Accompaniment Playing is a 46 page book with online audio and is for intermediate and advanced players, using harmonicas in the keys of G, A, Bb, C, D, F and low F.
