I have been playing harmonica for about 20 years, ever since I read this book. It is a very simple book but for Country, Rock and Blues it’s the only one you’ll ever need.

I get props for my harping all the time and have played for audiences of every size and even on live television.

Everything I know about the harmonica I learned in this book. I’m no John Popper and I never will be but I have a ton of fun and usually so does my audience. If you only ever read one book about how to play harmonica or even the blues in general, make it this one and you’ll most likely be just fine.


I’m a Highland bagpiper, but I’ve been wanting to learn to play the harmonica for years. I’ve bought lots of tutor books, but none of them brought me to a place where I truly “got” it. I’ve listened to the entire minute CD and immediately picked up tips that helped me learn this diminuitive instrument! The most important message that Jon conveys throughout this book is that YOU are the instrument!

The music and rhythm come from YOU, and the harmonica only gives it voice. That concept alone sets this book apart from the tutorials out there, and I think it’s the key that will finally allow me to “get” it!

I bought this on a whim because I had heard Jon’s name before in other context’s.

I read every page and I listened to every word. I enjoyed every moment and I learned a thing or two as well. Most of all I had fun. I sat in my room, on a stump, in my car, in one waiting room and in the post office listening, playing countdy laughing along with Jon. I’m sure musifally folks thought I was nuts but then I bblues laughing and they were not. Buy this book and a 5 buck harp and get a million dollar laugh. I am in the middle of this book and working at it.

But play, Play brother or you might as well just eat the watermelon. What a true enjoyment read along as you play along with the CD.

Then listen to the next bit as Jon walks us through the format. Out of the 3 people I’ve purchased similar products from, Jon is the best teacher and he makes it fun. Jon is just so good at breaking it down to small riffs, then before you know it, you are playing them and putting them together and they sound pretty good. I was playing acceptable stuff in just a xountry days and I was pretty much a raw beginner.

Honestly I still am which is why, I am so sold on Jon and his teaching techniques, that I will be spending some serious money on one of his Jam Camps in Mississippi this year. Keep up the amazing work Jon. This book is a good way to start if you know absolutely nothing about cross harp playing, will develop you some riffs and start from the very basics to some mid-intermediate skills such as bending.

Jon Gindick is a good teacher, but I found this hxrmonica too short and really basic.

Country and Blues Harmonica for the Musically Hopeless (with harmonica and cassette)

It goes directly to blues-style cross harp playing with a little intro in First position which you actually need to start there to have a better base Stuff as Tongue blocking, or rhythmical patterns are almost not touched at all really briefly There is no “Country Harp” at all, just a 5 notes riff in a page that is just tabbed out, but that riff ain’t on the CD so since there is no musical notation or recording for it you won’t know how to play it “Countryfied” It is a good book but I recommend you more Harmonica For Dummies by Winslow Yerxa since it touches several positions, scales, and playing styles and different techniques in a more than pages book.


Focused on Major Scale songs, blues, country, folk and even fiddle tunes and stuff The good part, the explanation for some techniques as bending or vibrato are really good, Jon Gindick as an awesome approach to make you feel musical and to help making a muscle memory and can be such an inspiring person.

I bought this book as a gift for my friend, who HAS described himself as “musically hopeless” in a regrettable way. So I thought a combination of a new harmonica, THIS book, and my faith in him might spur him on to great musical things!

If anything, he’ll just get a kick out of it It’s fun to read and simple to understand. It comes with an accompanying CD which I haven’t listened to, but I think it’s a vital part of this learning process. So, though I haven’t given the gift yet, I’M pleased with the product thus far One person found this helpful.

If you need a teacher to encourage you and give you good advice, Jon Gindick is the one. Everyone of his books as well as this one is a gem written by a man with a good heart and imagination. See all 65 reviews.
