About this harmonica course

If you are new to Sonny Terry please start with 'Sonny Terry Blues Riffs Book 2'

These play along harmonica lessons for intermediate harp players teach you traditional blues riffs in the style of the great Sonny Terry. One of the most enduringly popular harp players, everyone wants to play like Sonny – and we’ll show you how! Ben explains more in our video:


Each of the 60 featured riffs is played at three speeds, full tempo, slowed down, and somewhere in the middle, comes with interactive guitar and drums, and is written in standard music notation with harmonica tabs.

We start with simple exercises to get your chops working, and build up to some trickier rhythmic and textural playing. You’ll master a wide variety of Sonny’s techniques as you work through the book, ending with four play along tracks so you can practice what you’ve learned.

We’ve produced the backing tracks in a more modern idiom than the original Brownie McGhee style, tapping the more rocky vein of Sonny’s album with Johnny Winter.

There’s also a special bonus track from Grammy Award-winner Peter Madcat Ruth. His ‘Georgie Buck’ is a real Sonny Terry-style extravaganza – listen to more of his music at

All our harmonica lessons can be downloaded as audio and PDF packs, stand alone PDFs, or ordered as CD and book.

    Compiled by Ben…

    Hi Ben and Paul !
    I was the first who has downloaded Sonny Terry 2 ? Well that`s funny.
    I have founded it via

    I have lurked like the black spider in the web `till it comes out.
    I never have had lessons and i don`t know any other harp player. So sometimes i stuck in a rut and it is really helpfull to get some new material to work with. Especially more advanced stuff.
    I´m a totally Sonny Terry freak, so this one is an absolute highlight for me.
    This is REALLY fantastic stuff and i hope it`s a success so you maybe go for volumne 3.

    Great quality for small money.
    Thanks a lot for your great work, don`t stop.

    “Starting with those inimitable rhythmic chugging patterns and progressing through a wide selection of Sonny’s classic riffs, Ben Hewlett has succeeded in breaking down the essential elements of Sonny Terry’s unique harmonica style into easily understandable sections which are readily accessible to the intermediate player. Accompanied by guitar and drums, Ben plays each figure at the original tempo, then slows it down to half time so you can hear every note, before playing it at tempo once again. This is a great source, both for Sonny Terry fans as well as for anyone just looking for some cool licks.”

    Rob Paparozzi
    “Ben has figured out how to make Sonny Terry’s licks & style attainable for harp players on all levels. His methodology and respect for the music are what make him a  great player and an extraordinary teacher. Kudos to Ben for ‘demystifying’ the work of one of our Harmonica Giants in a way the makes it FUN to learn a style with many twists, turns, hoots and hollers! ”

    Ben, just bought the sonny terry 2. This is great I am already practicing again. Thanks. And I saw sonny terry 3 is also coming. Thanks for making this available
     Again THANKS for putting me at work again.
    met vriendelijke groeten, with kind regards
    Robert Blake
