What was the first harmonica song that drove you crazy?

Little Stevie Wonder Fingertips II.


Walter Horton Easy :blush:


Stevie Wonder’s Finger Tips initially, and any blues harmonica music now. It took me 40 years to start playing and i’m having fun teaching my grandchildren how to play simple chords. Love your website and all the lessons I can get.



The first record I heard that inspired me when learning to play in 1969 was the version of Willie Dixon’s “Spoonful” on Wheels Of Fire by Cream. The song is in E and the harmonica part is really simple. I was trying to play it on a C harp in hole 2 draw/blow. The notes were right but the sound was wrong, then I figured out that if I played it in 3- & 2-draw, the sound was right although it was in the key of G instead of E. That’s how I discovered Cross Harp / 2nd Position…
