This is a good video for learning this harmonica part that shows up in this Japanese song.

This is not my tab. I just thought this would be good for people who want to learn but couldn't find the resource since it is in Japanese.

You don't need to know Japanese to follow him along.

Here is how you read his tabs:

Circled numbers = draw ①②③④⑤⑥⑦⑧⑨
Non-circled numbers = blow 123456789

A downward arrow (↓) indicates that you hit the bend for the note that comes before.

Ex. ④↓ means the 4 draw bend 1 step down.


④⤵ ⤴④ These types of curved arrows (seen in in the video) mean:

start from the 4 draw, bend down one step, return to the 4 draw again


in other words: -4 -4* -4 (*= bend)


This is how music is tabbed out in Japan. (I think it is easier to read once you get used to it). Feel free to use this format.




The original song can be heard with the link posted up above.
