GUEST,Tracey Dragonsfriend Any help for a new harmonica player? (98* d) Any help for a new harmonica player? 30 Mar 01

Well, after growing up listening to my Grandad play harmonica by ear to any tune he heard, adding effects with his hands or a glass, I've always loved the sound. So, when I was working in the USA for a week a while back & saw The Discovery Store selling Hohners at $6, I had to buy one. Now all I have to do is learn to play it! There's some great links out there, giving tabs for songs with the numbers you see on the case. I can now play all sorts of stuff - By the banks of the Ohio, Oh Suzannah, etc... AS LONG AS I keep the piece of paper in sight! Sometimes, I don't even spend 5 mins gasping for breath afterwards, too. But, sadly it's proved that I can't just play be ear as Grandad can... I NEED those tabs. But what I'd really like to do is play some basic blues, and I can't seem to find any tabs for that kind of thing. Anyone know of any very basic stuff around, or have any other advice?
