Basics to Fairly Advanced, Superbly Written 22. Januar 2009
Von New England Yankee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is truly well-written. It is crystal clear, follows a progressive course of instruction from end-to-end without any out-of-place interruptions, has no errors that I've been able to find, and actually covers more than most beginning players really want or need to know initially (e.g., playing in other than the first and second positions).

The accompanying CD is also excellent. While the tunes, in typical instruction book fashion, aren't anything you'd want to listen to for entertainment, as they are the usual folk tunes long out of copyright, they are well-recorded and each track is played in exactly the manner needed to illustrate whatever playing principle is being demonstrated. The backing instrumentation never overwhelms the harp, and the harp is played with only the techniques and ornamentation (bends, articulation, wah, etc.) appropriate to the topic. The tracks are already in MP3 format, so there's no need to rip them down to your PC for your iPod.

If you already play an instrument, there is material in this book that you can bypass, including notation, basic (very) music theory, and the like. It doesn't dominate the book and for the most part is contained in the first few chapters. Speedread through this material for the few harmonica-specific comments.

The book has few pictures or illustrations - but those it has are spot-on. Hand positions are illustrated. Tongue and mouth positions are illustrated. There are pictures in the repair and maintenance chapters. That's about it, but that's all that's needed, and I never felt the need for more. In fact, I particularly appreciated the embouchure (mouth and tongue) illustrations, which were better than I'd seen elsewhere to-date.

Harmonica for Dummies will occupy a beginner for a long time. This isn't a book you will buy, zip through in a week or two, then toss aside wanting more. Plan on spending many weeks - or months. If you come out at the other end having mastered all the material in this book, you'll probably be a better player than most non-pros you will meet.

Were I to wish for anything different in this book, it would be more of a blues and rock emphasis. The book is positioned as a generalized harmonica instruction book, however, so a variety of types of music and playing styles are presented.

Highly recommended 11. Oktober 2008
Von Steven R. Webb - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Winslow Yerxa's book "Harmonica for Dummies" should be titled "Everything You Need to Know About Harmonica"
Winslow is one of the most highly respected members of the nation's harmonica community. He has forgotten more about harmonica than most of us will ever learn. As I told him, if this book had been available 30 years ago when I started playing harmonica, I would be a real player now. Anyone interested in harmonica will not find a book with more information, and concise, easy to understand instruction, than this gem.
If you have any urge at all to learn how to play this fascinating little instrument, this will be the best money you have ever spent.
I play harmonica in a band and I can find all kinds of things in this book that will keep me learning.

Just what the doctor ordered! 17. September 2010
Von RBM - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I love music but as far as singing, playing or reading music I'm musically challenged..,but determined to try and learn.

Winslow Yerxa has written a brilliant how-to book for those looking to "make music" on the harmonica, or harp.

I purchased a Hohner "Big River Harp" in the key of C and then proceeded to search out the "easiest" to comprehend book that others have recommended. So many other books are really too basic and don't answer all of the questions us begineers struggle with, there's generally a lot of sheet music in them without really telling you how to get there.

This book is very clearly written, concise, has humor and it is just plain fun to sit down with. The CD with it sweetens the package. I put the CD on my IPod for the pure convenience of it.

The book isn't overly heavy on music theory or harmonica history but has just the right amount for me to grasp the essentials.

Before the book I had tons of questions such as 1.)controling notes, 2.)isolating single notes, 3.)how to blow (it's really breathing...,inhale (draw) and exhale (blow), 4.)what you do with your mouth or embouchure (awm-boo-shure),5.) when to start and stop notes, and on and on. Now I'm very well versed in all of these areas...and surprised I could be this quickly.

This book is both for a begineer and I believe even current harmonica players will appreciate the tips and tricks also.

You really can't go wrong and thanks to all the previous reviewers who made my decision easier.

Very worthwhile purchase...,well done Winslow...,thank you.

For Dummies and Smarty-Pants too! 15. Oktober 2008
Von David R. Fertig - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Winslow Yerxa and team produced what may be the best book about harmonica yet. He really covers the whole range of issues with harp which I've encountered in my almost 40 years of playing blues harp purely from feel, and he demonstrates with words that which normally defies explanation.

Yerxa's intellect and humor animate the organization, writing, and tone of the tome, making it both entertaining, and eminently readable, even for a poor book-learner such as myself!

Congratulations on creating a super-resource for our fine and enigmatic instrument!

Make sure you have or order the correct 'Key' of Harmonica 25. September 2011
Von HighRiver ForestRun - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
So far I've been very happy with this book. I haven't traditionally been a huge fan of the 'Dummies' series of books, but this one is one of the most extensive books written on playing Harmonica ever. I have one ding that keeps it from getting 5 stars though. The marketing and cover of the book do not make it clear when you are evaluating a purchase of the book that you will need a Major Diatonic Harmonica in the Key of C in order for the songs that are presented in the book to sound proper when you play along to the included CD. For example, the default "Editorial Review" of the book does not mention that the book recommends you use this specific harmonica exclusively. I do see see that a Harmonica in the Key of C is in the "Items Frequently Purchased Together" and in the "Customers who Bought this Item Also Bought" sections of the book description but those are not clear indicators that the book will advise you get this specific harmonica. You can 'Peek Inside' the book, but the harmonica requirement information is absent there also. So, buy the book as it is excellent, but be prepared with a 10 hole Harmonica in the Key of 'C' or have one in the works with your order because you will need it in order to have the full 'kit' that will maximize your experience in learning to play the harmonica.
