This category contains songs that are very easy to play and are the best choice for beginner mouth organ players. We’ve hand-picked all the songs that are easy to pick up and learn quite fast. The songs have simple melodies and relatively slow tempo, which is essential for beginner harmonica players. No songs in this section require you to know techniques such as tremolo, vibrato, bending, overbending or overblowing meaning that you won’t have to focus too much on articulation but just the melody. Make sure to get through a fair amount of songs in this section before you move on to the medium section, which is a bit more difficult as it introduces some new techniques and types of articulation. If you happen to just have purchased your first harmonica, go ahead and take a look at our “Start here” section, where we explain our system. Some of the easy songs we recommend for starters are “Old MacDonald”, “Silent Night” and “Every Breath You Take”. The songs in “Easy” section are in different genres, ranging from rock songs to Christmas Carols. You can pick whichever you like and start learning right away. Each song has an instructional video, which will be very helpful for beginner harmonica players. The videos can be slowed down so you can practice more precisely. Don’t force yourself – take a break once in a while and repeat the toughest parts as many times as you need. Once you learn some songs here, move on to the medium section, where the songs are a bit more difficult and incorporate many must-know techniques.
The “Medium” section is filled with songs, that feature a relative amount of articulation techniques such as vibrato, tremolo, bending, overblowing and overbending. You don’t necessarily have to focus on them right away, but the songs sounds a lot better with them. Songs in “Medium” section might take longer to learn than the ones in “Easy” section but will learning them will definitely give you more satisfaction and experience in your harmonica adventure. Make sure to go through most of the songs in this section before you move on to “Hard” section. One of our recommendations here is “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”, which is a lovely low-tempo ballad.
Focus on the melody and rhythm first but make sure to practice the aforementioned techniques to make each song sound special. After you nail a fair amount of medium songs, feel free to try some from our “Hard” section. Each section has songs in many genres, so you should be able to pick something for yourself easily. We personally recommend genres such as Country and Blues as they are a foundation of harmonica music. Now go ahead and grab your C harmonica, pick a song and practice as long as you have to before you can nail the song in one try. Practice along to our instructional videos, which you can slow down at any time for more precise practicing. Remember to take a break once in a while – they’re as important as the practice itself. Once you learn to play most of the medium songs fluently, move on to the hard section to keep on progressing.
