  • "Tabs" (or Tablature) defined- Tabs are a simplified way to notate harmonica solos, harmonica parts, melodies and songs, without having to formally read music. Directly below is an example of our tab system.

    The "Tab" system.

  • The timing for the tabs is not included, but is important- If you don't know the harmonica part or melody well, the notes may be correct, but without proper timing, the song may be hard to recognize.

    If you would like the complete music for piano (or guitar) with chords and timing included, visit Harmonica Store.com for song, tab, and "fake" books that include numerous artists and styles of music.

  • Playing problems for songs with high notes or low draw notes- If you are having problems with the high blow and draw notes on holes 7-10 or lower draw notes like hole 2 draw, check out the Breathing section at Harmonica Lessons.com for info on how to correct the problem. Generally speaking, songs with a lot of high notes will sound better on lower keyed diatonic harmonicas like the keys of "G" and "A".
