Clear and Straight forward…
“I’d just like to say that your instruction is fantastic, and explains the harmonica in such a clear and straight forward way that it makes learning a pleasure. Thanks!”

Ideal for any beginning harmonica player…
“This large-format paperback is ideal for any beginning harmonica player because Dave Gage is a master of blending theory and practice in just the right proportions. He also knows that “keep it simple” is not enough unless wedded to “make it fun.” That Gage can do both things without talking down to his instrument or his audience is a marvel in itself.
The song tabs in the book are easy to read, and the conversational writing style relies heavily on bulleted lists to good effect. Crisp black and white photographs are used intelligently throughout.
Basic harmonica instruction can be found in many places, but I know of no other book or pamphlet that offers that in an attractive package together with jamming tips and shortcuts, observations on the difference between practicing and playing, lesson plans on a six-week cycle,and more.”
