  • How to Play the Harmonica

    They break the pattern of moving smoothly up a major scale with alternating inhales and exhales (blows and draws). Sometimes the pattern of blows and draws changes, sometimes notes in the scale are skipped or repeated. Maybe the attached graphic will make it clearer.In C, the notes of a major scale are C D E F G A B C. If you try to connect those notes in order in the graphic on step 3, you'll find they mostly follow a zigzag pattern, with some exceptions. See if you can follow the major scale up the harmonica and note the pattern of blows and draws. On holes 2, F is skipped. Between 2 and 3, G is repeated. On 3, G is skipped. On hole 7, the order of blow and draw switches, and it stays that way for the next octave. On hole 10, B is skipped. Hope that helps.

    Hi Richard,I'm so sorry about that. I made this instructable 10 years ago, when I was in high school, and admittedly didn't give much thought to intellectual property or citations. I removed the image and added a link to your website instead.I'm not active on instructables these days; I'm sorry I didn't see your comment sooner. To be honest I was surprised to see people still visiting this page.All the best.
