Sonny Boy Williamson Lick - Free Harmonica Lesson

Updated: Oct 22, 2021

Hello! In this blues harmonica lesson, we'll be playing the iconic Sonny Boy Williamson II riff on a Bb harmonica. Used in several of his recordings, the riff is most famously used in the classic 'Help Me' and takes place solely on holes 3 and 4. Techniques required: single notes, bending, tongue-blocking/slapping. Good luck!
