"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." — Leo da Vinci (an early blues artist)
BeatTab Harmonica (4 book series + more)
Choose from hundreds of pieces from easy favorites of Folk, Love, Campfire, Oldies, Holiday Favorites or Children's songs to that of the Blues. Then settle down to play like you never have before. This innovative tablature is coupled with complete and precise integral rhythm details that do not need those nasty "dots and tails". Also extensive playing tips have been included. These are very unique books compared to the usual fare of instruction manuals that largely leave the player to flounder.
Alpha Beat Music Notation
A remarkably different notation for all instruments — providing answers so simple (and familiar even) that you may be shocked at the potential impact. These innovations suggest substantial benefits — even beyond just the early learning stages. Easy, compact and precise. Although not part of the above series, chapters 5 and 6 of this book provide additional valuable insights per the advanced usage of BeatTab.
