My Funny Valentine | Harmonica Lesson + Free Harp Tabs

Hello! This is a diatonic harmonica lesson for the jazz standard 'My Funny Valentine'. This is not an easy song to play but it's a great challenge for your technique.

The tab system

The song is tabbed out for diatonic harmonica (in any key). The symbols I use are pretty basic - positive numbers are blow, negative numbers are draw.



Intermediate (no overblows but lots of bends):


-1 2 -2// 2 -2// 2

My funny valentine

-1 2 -2// 2 -2// 2

Sweet comic valentine

-1 2 -2// 4 -3/ -3// -2

You make me smile with my heart

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

Your looks are laughable

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

Unphotographable

-2// -2 -3// 5 -4 4 -3 -3/

Yet you're my fav’rite work of art


-3// -2 4 -2// -2// 2 -2//

Is your figure less than Greek

-2// 2 -4 -2// -2// 2 -2//

Is your mouth a little weak

2 -2// 5 -2// -2// 2 -2// -2 -3// -4

When you open it to speak, are you smart

2 -1 2 -2// 2 -2// 2

But don't change a hair for me

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

Not if you care for me

-4 5 -5 5 -5 5 -3// -5

Stay little valenti-ine, stay

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

Each day is Valentine's Day
