As a longtime diatonic player, I’m finding this method a great and practical way to start navigating around the chromatic. For me, Ross has a teaching style that works! – Richard from Aukland, New Zealand.
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.
This site is your gateway to some free instructional videos as well or you can click here to tune into my YouTube site for a more thorough listing of those supplementary videos. You can also get yourself ready by purchasing a 12 hole chromatic harmonica in key of C.
