There are many 'basic' introductions to Blues Harp on the market; but most of them are either good on introducing you to the techniques, but full of tedious and unenthusing 'practice themes', or else (even more common) offer a few enjoyable exercises but hardly explain the skills they develop or how to use the riffs to further your general development.
This book has a nearly perfect balance of hints on playing technique and real tunes, riffs, and grooves to make the techniques worth practising (and learning). The CD is very helpful for playing along.
