Adam Gussow's harmonica warmup exercises (with overblows).mov
For ADVANCED INTERMEDIATE blues harmonica players, or INTERMEDIATE players who are developing the ability to overblow, this video tutorial works through a half-dozen different exercises created by Adam Gussow for his own use. (Three of them are featured in the preview.)
These exercises develop speed, fluency, and the ability to transition smoothly from the bottom to the top of the harp and back. They help players integrate overblows within a traditional diatonic blues context. They also provide a workout on upper octave bends. Gussow shows you a series of variations on triplet phrasing--not just standard eighth-note triplets (three to a beat), but sixteenth-note triplets (three to an upbeat) achieved through a rapid slur. This particular trick is one of Gussow's characteristic moves; he decodes it for you here.
Note: a tab sheet is also available for this lesson.
