I just found the old harmonica i got given last xmas and became inspired by videos of pros on youtube. I am obviously a complete beginner and was wondering if anyone else can recommend any good websites where i can pick up the basics and then improve further

Thanks : )

well the first thing you need to do is learn how to hold it, from there, you need to learn how to play single clear notes, there are several different styles that people use to play single notes, I pucker my lips, and pull my lower lip out a bit and then angle my harp slightly. learn something simple, like the 12 bar blues. There should be quite a few videos for 12 bar blues. What key is your harp in?

I have a couple of pages of harp reviews and comments on my site, too.
