Playing problems for songs with high notes or low draw notes- If you are having problems with the high blow and draw notes on holes 7-10 or lower draw notes like hole 2 draw, check out the Breathing section at Harmonica Lessons.com for info on how to correct the problem. Generally speaking, songs with a lot of high notes will sound better on lower keyed diatonic harmonicas like the keys of "G" and "A".
Difficulty with 2D- If you are having trouble with the low draw notes (i.e. 2 Draw sounds bad [flat] or seems to leak a lot of air), check out the HarmonicaLesssons.com Breathing section for info on how to correct the problem. If you continue to have problems with 2D, you may substitute the 3B (hole 3 Blow) any time you see a "2D".
"Tabs" (or Tablature) defined- Tabs are a simplified way to notate harmonica solos, harmonica parts, melodies and songs, without having to formally read music. Directly below is an example of our tab system.
