Sonny Boy Williamson II Blues Riffs
About this harmonica course
This play along course for beginners and intermediate harp players teaches you how to play traditional blues riffs on your harmonica, and is the ultimate short-cut fast-track to playing like ‘the one and only Sonny Boy Williamson II’. Ben explains more in our video:
Our harmonica lessons feature 60 great blues harmonica riffs for you to add to your repertoire, including intro riffs, outro riffs, turnarounds, solo building blocks, chordal chugging riffs for the low C harmonica (which also work fine on a normal C), question and answer phrases typical of Sonny Boy’s playing… in fact everything you need to learn to play like Sonny Boy!
Starting out simply, even total beginners will be able to play along. As the book progresses, you will come across new ideas, such as Sonny Boy’s unique approach to playing single notes, which we will teach you in just a few simple steps.
You’ll learn to play those wonderful deep chords, the high piercing phrases, the tremolo and vibrato techniques, the choking and tongueblock bending and the amazing phrasing. And, if you study this book, you will learn so much more about the man sometimes known as Sonny Boy Williamson the Second!
All our harmonica lessons can be downloaded as audio and PDF packs, stand alone PDFs, or ordered as CD and book.
