Get Chugging (Volume 1)
‘Chugging’ is our entry level playalong set. It gets you started. It teaches you how to play in rhythm and how to breathe – the very foundations of music and harmonica playing respectively. It uses articulation (loud whispering of crazy phrases) and gets you chugging along with various styles of music composed for this work including Blues, Country, Reggae, Indian, African, Funk and more. It’s challenging and fun – you will be able to do the whole lot, rather than getting to the second page and being told ‘Now you’ll need to be able to read music’. In fact the audio tracks are ‘stand alone’ – you can do the entire thing without looking at the book.
We have included a book to expand on the written form of music, a skill we encourage students to acquire as well as learning to play and improvise by ear. ‘A real nice approach, and a wonderful teaching tool for everyone from beginners to intermediates’ Lee Oskar (himself). Not currently available for download – the printed version of the book is published by Mel Bay and is available from good book stores.
The complete Download consists of a .pdf file with the written material and .mp3s for the audio. There are more music tracks in this package. Each panned track has a companion stereo mix for performance without the guide harmonica part – now you can solo with the band! Total file size = 86 Mb
