But now, with the ninth hole overdraw,
we have the full chromatic
scale in the third octave.
And if you really want to,
you can get a C sharp on the tenth hole.
it's even more than three octaves.
So now we have a three
octave chromatic instrument.
And you can use those overdraws
on top of the harmonica to play.
There's a bluesy lick that everyone knows.
I've played it a hundred times now but.
Now we can play.
Because that flat five
is the seventh hole overdraw note.
And you can even bend it up just like.
you can sound like a totally
believable blues player.
Using that seventh hole overdraw and
the sixth hole overblow.
So now you see how this stuff works.
So exercises for the overdraws.
I'd say just.
Seven draw, seven blow,
seven overdraw, seven blow.
It's good to get it in
context, to get it in tune.
And then the same thing with nine.
So, then you can start practicing
the chromatic scale up on
the top of the instrument too.
You can practice
it in little increments.
So that it
nature to you.
The more you work on this the less
intimidating the top of the harmonica
with all of these notes available to you,
for example, you can play the D
major scale all the way up and
down the instrument because
you need F sharp and C sharp.
So here's a D major scale.
And so all the pitches
are there for D major.
And so on and so forth.
So later on I'll show you
how to play in every key.
Blues licks, jazz licks, jazz tunes,
all sorts of stuff in all 12 keys,
just on this one C diatonic harmonica.
