The Beatles - Love me do - Harmonica Tips
I would just like to start off by saying, I was due out last night at the nightclub and I thought I would just make a quick video for this hub when halfway through making it my computer kept crashing! Not to mention my family were out but when they came back I had to rush the video to avoid upsetting them with Harmonica 'noise'. I'm also well renowned for having a slow voice, I tried to speed it up in the other attempts at making it, but I think in the end the video I managed was fairly decent and I'm happy with it.
Ive included some photos of my 2 best and favorite harmonica's, The Marine Band(M. Hohner) and The BluesMaster by Hohner, both of them retail for around $45 so not cheap but your paying for quality. They are specially designed to give the best sound and you have a wooden comb rather than plastic, I find this more comfortable on the mouth.
*Please excuse the fact that my tutorial video is no longer present, I started a new Youtube channel and accidently deleted my old one, I will get around to filming me playing in the future, for now I have left the tab for you to practice.
Tablature - Played with a Key of 'C'
Here's what I failed to mention in the video, maybe its less confusing this way anyhow..
The first part of the song was:
-5 5 -4 3 3 3
The notes where a minus has been added to the number means they are a draw note, and you can experiment with vibrato and bending, just listen to what John Lennon is doing and try and copy, although you don't have to.
The next part definitely has a bit of bending in it, I bend a lot anyway, I tried to explain my tip for learning bending in the video, I'll call it the 'whistle-method' and I learnt this myself.
- 5 - 5 - 5 5 5 5 - 4 3 3 3 combine this with the first part and that the start of the song
3 3 3 4 - 4 this is just where he fades in at the start of the song
Further on in the song you get another part, the 'someone to love, somebody new' part
-4 -4 4 -3 6 -5 5 -4
And that's it! fairly easy, you can now join Beatlemania! hope I didn't confuse anybody with the bending tips. I need to do another video explaining 'vibrato' but if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. I know Lyricsingray is just starting harmonica and I imagine others search hubpages for tips, so I thought why not make a page here because YouTube doesn't leave much room for explaining in text.
