David Barrett – Building Harmonica Technique Vol. 1-4
Dec 28 2011
From the most prolific author of blues harmonica books and CD’s comes the most comprehensive DVD series ever to be released for the blues harmonica player. Much of the material in this DVD series has never been covered in any book, CD, or video instructional.
These DVDs bridge the gap between what can be studied from home and what can only be learned in private lessons. With large charts, diagrams, and many playing examples… nothing is left to the imagination.
David Barrett is the world’s most published author of the blues harmonica. Having played saxophone and trumpet for many years David already had a solid musical platform when he started to play the harmonica at age fourteen.
