I’ve been fascinated by classical harmonica music ever since I first heard Buddy Greene rock Carnegie Hall. I was hooked immediately and set out to learn what he was playing. Fast forward 5 or 6 years, and I’ve managed to learn a handful of different classical and opera pieces, or at least major themes and melodies from them. I’ve been working lately to string them together into a fluid medley so I can play them for an audience. Tonight I thought I’d share what I’ve worked out so far.
By the way, if anyone can help me identify the melody that starts at 1:26, I would be most grateful. I have heard the name of it before, but can never remember who or what the song is. It’s just a song I know.
Have a listen and enjoy!
