This book starts with more songs, exercises, and rhythm training, then leads you through a variety of bending techniques. You'll also learn many other more advanced techniques used by professional players, such as shakes, glissandos, breaks, and the different types of throat vibrato. This book will help you learn to use all of these techniques within a musical context. At the end of each chapter, you'll find review questions to help you make sure that you understood the main points covered. The D harmonica is used for most of the material in this book, but harmonicas in keys of A and C are also used.
