So far, a great resource. Just started fooling around with the harmonica and since I've been happy with other "For Dummies" manuals I figured I'd give this one a try. It really does take you from the VERY beginning into some pretty advanced technique. The CD is invaluable, especially if you can download it to your iPod or other MP3 type player. That way you you get both the visual reinforcement (the book) and you can hear what it's supposed to sound like. I would highly recommend this to any harmonica beginner, and there is some pretty good stuff even for the more advance players. advanced harp players.
