When I started learning guitar, I began by finding songs based on a few easy chords that I knew how to play. I would accompany myself singing, no individual notes, no licks, just strumming. This approach worked well, and I was pretty much able to jump into playing songs. Over time I have refined and expanded my skill set. Overall, the approach has been very gratifying.
Could a similar approach work with harmonica? I was thinking maybe I could do the equivalent of playing chords to accompany others, since I can’t exactly accompany myself singing. I gave it a try using some of my guitar tabs, but I couldn’t figure out what the harmonica equivalent of G, A, D, E, etc., chords are.
I would appreciate any thoughts by those on this board. Song recommendations would be welcome (I go to lots of old time, bluegrass, and folk jams). I have an A harmonica.
