Hi, my name is George Goodman and I want to help you learn how to play guitar and harmonica.
I am really excited to announce that I have just released, in eBook format, The Guitar and Harmonica Method.

Have You Ever Wanted To Learn How To Play Guitar And Harmonica?

To get up and perform tunes at the local open mic?
To entertain around the camp fire?
Or join in on a picking and grinning kitchen table gathering?
Or just for yourself?
Or maybe you want to take it further and are looking for some serious instruction to get you started?
Guitar and Harmonica Method eBook Now AvailableThen the Guitar and Harmonica Method can help.
The first section of the Guitar and Harmonica Method focuses on rhythm acoustic guitar basics taking the reader through the various parts of the guitar, what to look for when choosing a guitar, 3 different ways for holding the guitar, how to tune a guitar using the guitar itself, using a piano and using an electronic tuner. The reader will also learn chords and how to read chord diagrams, followed by strumming, counting, and playing rhythms. The goal of this section is to learn to play solid rhythm acoustic guitar to accompany the harmonica and vocals.
The second section focuses in on the diatonic harmonica and includes choosing the right harmonica, parts and maintenance of the harmonica, techniques for getting the best sound, 2 different ways how to play single notes, 5 different ways to produce a professional sounding vibrato, how to bend notes and helpful techniques to get you bending quicker as well as harmonica embellishments and tablature.
Finally, the third section brings the two instruments together. Basic music theory is explored to help explain which key harmonica to use depending on the chords and style of the song and what notes or holes to play depending on a particular chord.
Practice exercises bring these concepts home, bring the two instruments together, help refine the skills you develop from the first two sections and introduce ear training to hear chord tones, scale tones, degrees of the scale, intervals and to understand what you’re hearing.
Also covered in the third section is an introduction to the Blues. Learn the common 12 bar progressions for the Blues, how to pick the right key harmonica for the Blues, where the Blues chord tones are on the harmonica, as well as how to play the blues scale on harmonica.
The Guitar and Harmonica Method is available in all eBook reader formats for easy accessibility so you can take it with you. Don’t forget to carry your harmonica with you too.

Cheers, George

amazing website. thank you for the freebies; they are very well done; long may you run is quite complete & striking, a very important song to share with the world…. I grew up on Dylan songs and to have you teach guitar & harmonica & sing is very special. john Wesley harding album is nothing but guit & monica i.e. I dreamed I saw St Augustine, alive as you or me; JUST SO F=ING SPIRITUAL/FOLK rock SOUL…. you must do a complete dedication to those songs; to save mankind from SELF DESTRUCTION. DYLAN SINGLE HANDEDLY PUT THE GUITAR &HARMONICA ON THE MAP, ALONG THE WATCHTOWER (WHICH YOU SHARE) BUT ALL THE SONGS ARE SO WONDERFUL AS well as….shelter from the storm…great harp element, throw back to his glory days from BLOOD ON THE TRACKS. blonde on blonde’s stuck inside the mobile is an absolute MUST! ONLY YOU CAN MAKE THE SAD EYED LADY OF THE LOWLANDS TO SMILE. AND NO DONT SEND ME ANY POSTCARDS UNLESS ITS FROM DESOLATION ROW.

LONG MAY YOU RUN my brother……………………….. DOWN ALONG THE COVE.

Hi george. I’m wondering are you familiar with a tune by the grateful dead
called big boss man? I’d really like to play that on the harp. I think
learning that tune would help me play harp and sing a full song.
