This is NOT a harmonica simulator!
You will need an ordinary 10-hole Major Diatonic harmonica in the KEY OF "A" in order to play along and learn.
The Beginner Blues Harmonica SuperTutor™ will help ANYONE learn to play harmonica. Whether you are an absolute beginner who's never picked up a harmonica, or maybe you've tried to play at some point without much success, or even if you're pretty good and simply want to improve, you’ve got an instruction studio wherever you go.
This program consists of approximately 72 minutes of audio instruction with visual guide so you can follow along easily. It also includes 12 minutes of solid blues backup music so you can jam along.
The SuperTutor covers care and maintenance of your harp, proper breathing, single notes, bends, chords, octaves, trills, trains, blues scale, phrasing, 12-bar blues structure, improvisation, and much more.
You can follow along start-to-finish or jump to the track index and choose a specific skill to work on, or even “shake to shuffle”—it's up to you and how you learn best.
Get started today and you'll enjoy a lifetime of learning to play harmonica in that famous Blues style!
Lee Oskar of War says:
"It takes a special person to be a blues harmonica teacher and Blue Barry has what it takes. I would recommend this instruction as a great place to begin your blues harp journey or to continue from where you are."

Improved user experience.
Great for ppl with 0 experience
I found a harmonica someone must have given me at some point and thought it would be cool to learn how to play it since I'm a huge blues fan. I got this app about a week ago and so far I think it's great. I'm not practicing every day, although the more I play the more I want to play and that would never be the case if I didn't have someone guiding me. Barry is a great instructor and obviously knows what he's talking about.
Highly recommended to anyone who ever wanted play an instrument but never got around to it. Get a cheap harp, this app and in no time you'll be a musician :)
Playing better in 1 hour
I'm 54 yrs old. Been goofing with a C for so long it hurts. This guy puts it in simple, easy to play terms. Bought a Pignose this week because I'm actually gonna get good...finally...with his help. Taught me to 'Chug'...something lacking in my repetoire. Adjusted my screwed up blues licks. Gave me scales to practice. AND above all...convinced me to play the 1, 2, 9 and 10 holes!!! Never did that. I would like private lessons with this dude...I'm not half bad, but he WILL make me better. I'll be following his lead for,...like forever. I'm a fan. I'm improving.
It's bit late for me to be writing this now because I bought and learned harmonica with this app when it was new about four years ago, but it was a great Experience, as I became proficient in blues harmonica, and still plays with groups sometimes. Some of the lessons take more practice than others, but like any other instrument practice makes perfect. The memories of spring afternoons listening to Blue Barry guide me remain vivid and pleasant after all these years.
