50 Awesome Blues Riffs
About this harmonica course
These play along harmonica lessons for developing or intermediate harp players are inspired by some of the best harmonica players we know. We’ve studied their styles, distilling them into something new, exciting and original to help you expand your blues repertoire. Ben explains more in our video:
Our inspirations include Sonny Boy Williamson II, Little Walter, Big Walter, William Clarke, Sonny Terry, Lee Oskar, Paul Lamb, Howard Levy, not Bob Dylan, Charlie Musselwhite, Jason Ricci, Steve Baker, Don Baker, Brendan Power, Junior Wells, Howling Wolf, Billy Boy Arnold, Joe Filisko, Tom Ball, and more.
We want you to learn as many riffs as possible and use them in your solo and backing playing. You may find some of these riffs long and challenging – if you’re finding them too hard, then try 101 Blues Riffs instead – these were written in response to people requesting more of a stretch!
Please note that you will need several harmonicas to complete this course – A, Bb, C, D, F and G natural minor.
All our harmonica lessons can be downloaded as audio and PDF packs, stand alone PDFs, or ordered as CD and book.
