I started playing chromatic in 1982 after a few years of saxophone and blues harmonica study under my belt. The instrument baffled me at first but then I noticed that if I approached it like a woodwind instrument and applied basic disciplines such as scales and arpeggios that I began to make progress. But I also found myself approaching the instrument from a blues harmonica players perspective as well and that has certainly informed my improvisations. I have a real passion for helping diatonic blues players get acquainted with the chromatic. I also have a passion for playing the instrument in multiple keys.
I have an instructional product that is in the final stages of editing and will be released soon. I will have a streaming version featuring 4 hours worth of instruction and, eventually, a DVD version. This site is your gateway to some free instructional content as well.
While the site is under construction and my project is wrapping up please click here to tune into my YouTube site. You can also get yourself ready by purchasing a 12 hole chromatic harmonica in key of C.
