Hi. I'm Glenn Weiser. My website is celticguitarmusic.com. And I'm a private music instructor offering webcam lessons on harmonica and several other musical instruments. Today's topic is going to be campfire harmonica tablature for beginners. And for this we're going to use a famous campfire song, She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain When She Comes. Now there are different systems of writing out harmonica tablature, but the one I'm going to use today is the simple one of indicating a blow note with an uncircled number and a draw note with a circled number. So this would be four blow. This would be four draw. You would see the four with a circle around it. By the way the tablature to the song that I'm going to play is located on my website, once again, that's celticguitarmusic.com. And you'll be able to find it there if you want to learn how to play the song. OK. The next phrase is, she'll be coming around the mountain when she comes. The first line of the song repeats. The tablature is going to be seven blow, eight draw, eight blow, eight blow, eight blow, eight blow, nine blow, eight blow, eight draw, seven blow, eight draw, followed by an X, eight draw, eight draw, eight draw. Then, she'll be coming around the mountain, she'll be coming around the mountain. That's going to be, nine blow, nine draw, eight blow, eight blow, eight blow, eight draw, seven blow, seven blow, seven blow, six draw, six draw, six draw, six draw, eight draw, seven blow. Then, coming around the mountain when she comes. Six blow, six blow, seven blow, eight draw, eight blow, eight draw, six draw, seven draw, seven blow, followed by an X, seven draw, seven draw, seven draw, followed by an X. Here's the whole song. Thanks. I'm Glenn Weiser. Once again, my website is celticguitarmusic.com. So check out my website and get some information on my webcam harmonica lessons.
