I'm a Man / Hoochie Coochie Man free Harmonica Tabs & Lesson

Hello! Today's harmonica lesson teaches you to play the iconic lick from I'm A Man, by Bo Diddley, on a C diatonic harmonica/blues harp. This lick is often confused with the phrases from Hoochie Coochie Man and Mannish Boy, both by Muddy Waters. This lesson involves some draw bends so it is suitable for intermediates and advanced players, but beginners can play a basic version as discussed in the lesson.

Here are the harp tabs:
