Now I'll do the one, three,
two, four, three, five.
Those are numbers of
the notes of the scale.
So the names of the notes would be C,
E, D, F E, G, F, A, that one.
Now at the bottom of the harmonica,
it involves hitting the F and
the A as bent notes.
Two draw bend as F.
F and A, it's the draw bend and
the three draw bend down a whole step.
That's a little bit tricky to just
hit that with the two
draw bend next to it.
[SOUND] The mouth position is similar,
but they're not exactly the same.
So you can practice that.
And if you need a pitch reference,
if your really losing it,
which is entirely possible.
You go over to the piano and
just hit F and A.
It's very helpful,
because you could be bending away going.
And be totally out of tune,
sounding like a French ambulance.
And you're trying to get.
It's a good
pitch reference to do that and
it doesn't take
And if any of you don't know
the way the piano works,
I'll just take one slight second here.
C is the white key directly
underneath the two black keys.
[SOUND] F is the white
key directly underneath
the three black keys and it just goes like
the alphabet, C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C.
A is kind of in the middle of things,
that might confuse you, but C,
just if you remember that C is right here,
you can do these simple exercises
very simply on a keyboard.
a little harder.
Again, the two bend notes in a row.
It's one, two, three, blow.
One, two, three, draw, but two and
three are bent down to F and A.
This is E, G and B and
you can play the G either way as
the two draw or the three blow,
[SOUND] then F, A and C.
[SOUND] Two draw bend,
three draw bend, then [SOUND] two,
three, four draw and then A, C, E.
Three draw bend and then four blow and
five blow [SOUND] and then we're
up in the middle of the harmonica.
Three, four and five,
draw [SOUND] and then four,
five and six, [SOUND] blow,
which you already learned how to do.
So getting these triads down here,
they're a little trickier and
then you go down the same way.
And just for fun,
I just wanna show you
how the beginning of
the national anthem goes
in first position.
That part's pretty easy, it's all blows.
It's that sharp fourth,
it's the fourth note of
the scale up a half step,
which is your second hole
draw bent down a half step.
down to A.
And then the middle.
So by being able
to bend on the bottom of
the harmonica now you see,
you can play some simple melodies
that this one has one note
that's not in the major scale,
it's an F-sharp, [SOUND] but
it's not harder to play than the F.
I mean, it's just part of
the second hole draw bend.
[SOUND] So you can see that knowing how
to bend, opens up a lot of possibilities.
It's not just playing the blues and
playing the major scale in C,
there's all sorts of other music
that you'll be able to start to do.
