Many would be harmonica players never have the patience to learn the technique of blowing a single note on the harmonica. It is a shame really because all it requires is tilting the angle of the harmonica once it is in your mouth. There is another way to achieve a single note and that is by positioning your mouth over the hole so that your tongue blocks the holes which are not required, this technique is more advanced.
The harmonica used in this lesson was a Low ‘F’ harmonica. The exercise will work just as well with any harmonica.
