Sonny Terry 2 Blues Riffs
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 madcatmusic.net.
All our harmonica lessons can be downloaded as audio and PDF packs, stand alone PDFs, or ordered as CD and book.
