Udemy Chugging it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing! TUTORiAL
Rhythm harmonica for blues, country, rock, folk, jazz - any music works better with a beat or groove. Swing it and see.

This is an excellent course that will be extremely useful for anybody from total beginners to intermediate players.

All you need is a C harmonica (10-hole diatonic is best) - and your OPEN ears!

Each video lecture is acompanied by mp3 playalong tracks and the written music with standard notation, harmonica tabs and the words to say.

It starts very easy and will challenge you as you go on - but you will manage it, nothing impossible!

The idea behind it is to play' Rhythm harmonica'. Part of the role of a harmonica player is to provide rhythmic backing and that is what this course is all about.

When I was learning trumpet and tabla I realised that speaking the rhythms is a very good way of creating interesting sounds and rhythmic textures.

It also became clear to me as I was trying to teach people how to play like Sonny Terry that using words was a good way for me to explain it and easy thing for people to understand.

'Chugging' is all about saying, or rather whispering, crazy percussive words into the harmonica like 'choo chacka choo'. Just whisper Choo Chacka, Choo Chacka, Choo Chacka Chooooo into the harmonica and I think you will see what I mean, manage this well and enjoy the rhythm it produces.

You will also learn to play some train sounds.

Everybody likes to play a train whistle and here comes yours.

Exhale to prepare (not through the harmonica), grab holes four and five, breathe in, and articulate the word 'WOWW' as you do it.

As you breathe in try to 'chew' the sound by moving your tongue and jaw around a bit. Like 'wow wow wow'

Don't forget to pull the imaginary steam train whistle chord as you are coming round the mountain Casey Jones style.

It is starting small and simple but will get up to about 30 lectures. The advantage of getting it now is that it will have a low price and when the other lectures are added you will not have to pay any more! The more lectures it gets the higher the price will go.

Rosa has an unique was of teaching, She structure the course in a way, it let us figure out things first before giving us answers, not spoon feeding us. No dry boring lesson , I feel I'm being taught by how & why it 'works'... and not traditionally rigid like many other course out there. Thumbs up & keep up the good work.

Circle of 5ths Level 2 - Intermediate to Advanced

This course takes musicians to apply more advanced music theory into their playing - Tritones, Tritone Chord Substitutions, Jazzy Chromatic Chord Movement, 36251 Turn Arounds.

It is important for all musicians, whether you play guitar, piano, ukulele, violin, harmonica, or any musical instruments to develop an intimate knowledge of the Circle of 5ths. The Circle of 5ths is a visual picture that tells us the relations between keys, scales, chords, chord progressions, tritones, tritone chord substitutions, pentatonic scales, blues scales, 7 modes of music, etc.

The Tritone chord substitution is one of the most commonly used chord substitutions in jazz. By using tritone chord substitution, you often get a beautiful chromatic bass line in the song and especially in turn arounds.

When it comes to more advanced music theory, students get confused and give up in their struggle to advance in their musicianship.

Here's the secret: Learn to use the Moving Circle of 5ths Dynamically! When you know how to move the circle around to understand Tritones and how the interval is created in the Dominant 7 chords, you will understand why professional musicians do such smooth voicing because they know how to concentrate on the 3rd & 7th tones easily.

In this Circle of 5ths Level 2 course, I will show you how to use the Circle to do Tritone Chord substitutions with Dominant 7 Chords and Minor 7 Chords. In this way, you will have many more options in your music compositions other than the normal Diatonic Chord Progression & Secondary Dominants that you learned in Circle of 5ths Level 1 Course.

When you do Tritone Chord Substitutions, you begin to learn advance music harmonic sounds, and the importance of doing smooth voicing, chromatic bass line chord movement in turn arounds that audience loves to listen to.

In this course, I will also show you when Tritone Chord Substitutions work and when they don't work. There are some rules you need to follow so that you create beautiful harmonic sounds in your piece of music, whether reharmonizing a song or in the writing of your own songs.

You will be doing a lot of assignments so that you learn to find the answer yourself. What you discover sticks with you much more than what you are told. It is easy for me to lay out all the answers and theory for you. What is unique in the course is that I will coach you along to help you think and discover the answers for yourself in a creative way.

The following topics will be covered extensively:
