About the Actor

David Barrett is the world's most published author of the blues harmonica. Having played saxophone and trumpet for many years David already had a solid musical platform when he started to play the harmonica at age fourteen. By age sixteen he was already playing blues jam sessions and harmonica shows in the California bay area. By age eighteen he was studying music theory in college and started teaching harmonica at local music institutes. By age twenty he released his first book, Building Harmonica Technique, with Mel Bay Publications. While finishing his degree in music he had the opportunity to take over a local music store that helped spur the beginning of the Harmonica Masterclass Workshop. David now runs the Harmonica Masterclass Company full time, bringing lesson books, lesson videos, private instruction, and workshops to players all around the world.

David has worked and played with Charlie Musselwhite, Mark Hummel, Lee Oskar, Rod Piazza, James Harman, Gary Smith, Andy Just, Mark Ford, Billy Boy Arnold, Rick Estrin, Paul deLay, Jerry Portnoy, Gary Primich, Howard Levy, Magic Dick, Tom Ball, Annie Raines, Paul Oscher, Phil Wiggins, and Brendan Power. He now fronts his own band featuring John Garcia on guitar and vocals.

David is the owner of the Harmonica Masterclass Company, that specializes in harmonica products and workshops for blues harmonica. His last workshop had twenty-six states and eight countries represented in attendance. Through his numerous instructional books and videos, David is revolutionizing the way the harmonica is taught.

Product Description

Designed to augment level 2 of David Barrett's Harmonica Masterclass Series, this video bridges the gap between what can be studied at home and what can only be learned in private lessons. Fantastic visuals and camera close-ups ensure that even the smallest details are seen. Topics include how to practice, holding the harmonica, memorizing the harp, and several lessons on embouchure, articulation, properties of a bend, draw bend embouchure, articulating the bend, blow bending, over-bends, vibrato types, music theory, 12-bar blues, and soloing scales.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good DVD February 16, 2014
By Karl

I am currently learning to play the harmonica. David Barrett sometimes repeats himself in different books, but if you follow and repeat what he is repeating teaching, in other words, do it again and again, you WILL become better at playing the harp. I've bought several instructional books on the harmonica, and David Barrett's stuff is very good, I use it. This DVD is also very good, I watch it at least once every week or two, in between the learning-material I get from his books, which I practice daily. The DVD explains well, you know it reinforces what he teaches in his books, and makes it clearer and easier, it brings it all together.
