Song:

MINNIE THE MOOCHER

5th POSITION C Harmonica

Key of E(Blues Brothers version)

 

Many try to play this in 3rd position but this requires a lot of control on the hole 3 draw bends. This version uses fewer bends, and some of the runs are much smoother.

On some draw notes, experiment using bends at the start and end of notes
