[updated:LAST EDITED ON Jun-19-05 AT 00:32 AM (EST)]Does anyone know where I can learn really basic blues rhtyhm riffs on the harmoinca? I think the best thing for me to learn on the harmonica is really basic blues riffs. For instance the riff to I'm a Man, Back Door Man, Spoonful, etc.

You might try Yahoo! Group:harpplayers, Files, check out sections 1&4, Blues Riff. It may have what you are looking for.;)

There is a useful book/CD combination by UK harp player Ben Hewlett called 101 Blues Riffs, based on Sonny Terry, Little Walter, Sonny Boy II, Big Walter, Charlie McCoy, Rod Piazza etc. The website is http://www.HarmonicaCourse.com, but I can't get it to work at the moment. You can see a bit about it at http://www.harmonicaworld.com/product.p ... 262&page=1. I went to some of Ben's lessons a couple of years ago.
