Midnight Cowboy harmonica lesson and tabs

Hello! In today's harmonica lesson you'll learn to play the theme to the movie Midnight Cowboy on a C harmonica (You can follow the tab with a harmonica in the key of C or any other key.) This theme was originally played by Toots Thielemans on chromatic harmonica, but I have adapted it to play on 10 hole diatonic. There are both bends and overblows, so this lesson is more suited to an intermediate or advanced player than to a beginner.



Here are the free tabs:


-4 4 -3 -2 -3/ -3// -2 -2// (x4)


-2 -2 -3// -2 -2 -2// 2 -2//
