Tip of the Day: Harmonica Curses #2 - Theory

David Barrett Admin's picture

What were mentioned over the last couple of days as blessings also leads to one of our curses... since we don't have to learn about keys, scales, scale degrees and chords in our formative years, when it comes to communicating with musicians we're illiterate. Make sure to watch the Performance Training lessons on, specifically Groove; Openings, Endings & Breaks; and down the road the lessons on Theory and Accompaniment Playing. It's also a great idea to study books like Alfred's Essentials of Music Theory Complete. Theory's not easy to comprehend, nor is it evident immediately how it's to be used, but it will reveal itself to be useful the more you learn about it and the more you use of it over the years.
