For today’s episode, I thought it would be fun to ask some of my harmonica friends and colleagues for their top practice tips for Beginners. This is definitely the “secret sauce” from some of the world’s top players and teachers. Although it is advice for Beginners, any level of player will benefit from listening to this.
