STEP 1. Ready Steady Go... simple Blues, chords, how to breathe, 'chugging', rhythm, train sounds, history/legacy/engineering of the harmonica - where to get a harmonica, and which one do you need? How does it even work and make a sound? Which key? How do you clean it?
STEP 2. Game-changing baby steps: five ways to get single notes including Tongue-Blocking. What can you do with single notes? Start simple and gradually build up to playing simple scales.
STEP 3. Play music with other people - how? What are the practical opportunities and required skills: the ability to play melodies, improvisation, music theory, repertoire, modes, harmonica positions.
STEP 4. Turbocharge your skills: Bending notes; Draw and Blow bending, advanced Tongue-Blocking, increasing your repertoire, different music genres, working on timing, improvisation.
STEP 5. You're in the band - Go LIVE! Expand your comfort zone and skills; 'overbending', increase repertoire, musicality, performance skills...
