Harpaoke: This Little Light of Mine | Harmonica Tabs & Backing Track

Hello! This is a harmonica karaoke (or 'harpaoke'!) for the traditional song 'This Little Light of Mine'. There's a demo followed by a backing track with full harp tabs for you to follow and play along.


Did you know? This song was reported to be written by Harry Dixon Loes, but he never claimed credit for it.

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.
