Country blues harmonica rhythm exercise (Hotsy Totsy! Sonny Terry) free Harmonica Tabs & Lesson

Hello! In today's harmonica lesson we're learning to play a classic Sonny Terry-style country blues rhythm on a G diatonic blues harmonica. This is a basic rhythm which can be used as the starting point for a performance piece. There is a draw bend in this tab, so it's great for intermediates and those working on their bends.

Here are the harp tabs:

Single note version: 3 -3// 3 3 3 3

Full version: (slap)3 -3// -123 -123 -123 -123

Thanks for studying with me today. I hope you enjoyed learning this song!
