Great site! Keep up the good work.
I have been looking for harp tabs for some time now for Charley
Pride's "The Snakes Crawl at Night" and without luck.
This is an old-time favourite of my Dad's that he would enjoy hearing
on harmonica ... any chance of a posting for this song in the near

First off, I love your website. I’ve been using it for years.
I’m not a good harp player, and never will be, but I like to blow on one
time to time. Anyway, I noticed you have a collection of 4
hole songs. Do you know any 3 hole songs? Here’s one:
love this little song. It's only three notes on a diatonic, at
the way I hear it. To hear the melody and watch a very
video, here’s the link to his song:
I like guns, I
like the way they look,
5 5 5 4 4 4 4d 4d 5
I like the
shin-y steel, and the polished wood,
4 4 4 4 4 4d 4d 4d 5 4d 4
I don't care if they're big or small,
5 5 5 4 4 4d 4d 5
If they're for sale, Hell, I want 'em all.
4 4 4d 4d 4d 4d 5 4d 4
I like guns, I like guns, I like guns.
4 4 4d 4d 4d 5 4 4 4
I really like my twenty two mag,
5 5 5 5 4 4d 4d 5
Forty five lever with the Winchester tag,
4 4 4 4d4d 4d 4d 5
4d 4 4
My old double barrel, had it most of my life,
4 5 5 5
5 5 4 4 4d 4d 4d 5
Three fifty sev-en was a present from my
4 4 4 4d 4d 4d 4d 5 5 5 4d 4
I don't understand
all this fuss,
Why they're tryin to take our guns off of us,
ain't gonna shoot anyone,
And no one shoots at cause I've got a gun.
Now God made the animals, and God made the trees,
made you, Hell He even made me,
He gave me this voice so I could be
Why do think I've got a trigger finger.
Steve thinks he wrote the perfect gun song, but since he
anything about Cowboy Action guns, I felt obliged to write
verse. I doubt he'll feel obliged to include it in his song.
I really like my Cowboy guns,
My '47 Walker and my Navy
My .44-40 shoots as fast as a snake,
My 10 gauge Greener
starts a small earthquake.
I don’t know how you feel about
guns, it is a polarized issue, but while I am a certified gun nut, I’m
not an idiot with them.
Anyway, thanks for all the hard work you’ve
put into your website.

First of all, thank you for the free tabs! I'm having lots of fun
playing along with some of my favorite songs. I would like to suggest
'The Good, The Bad And The Ugly' by
Ennio Morricone. That song would
sound pretty nice on harp I reckon. Also, when right-clicking your
site I got a weird pop-up, this is some security measure by you
not an actual third party pop-up, is it?
September 18, 2010
Thanks for your well designed site. I have found myself picking up
the harmonica again at 47 (started learning scales in the 80s but
without anyone to play
rhythm it’s tough, and now with the internet
and youtube, as well as people making sites like yourself, I know I can
pick up where I left off and really excel! ) as
well as teaching
myself guitar.. Mid life crisis thing? Heheh I dunno. But anyways,
thanks for your site. I look forward to using it to find and teach
songs, not only on the guitar but on the harp as well.
Enjoy how your midis can be used as a backing track! Spent the entire
day tracking down an A Marine
Band harmonica, I just learned a cool
E blues progression as well as e minor/major pentatonic scale.. Found
your site by looking into the best blues keyed
harmonicas to buy.
Might save a little money and buy a 3 pack of marine bands in C G and A.
( when I was buying them in the 80s, they cost 7 dollars at the
most, guess they are made out of real gold now, heheh)
again for the site!

I like your site!
I'm actually can't find chords
for the following two songs:
Breakfast Club - Right on Track
and Don Johnson- Heartbeat.
Think you could let me know what
I'd appreciate it.

im actually a member of harp talk (Kenny/Gore Almighty)
website is amazing, and I know you have a site suggestions link but i
thought Id drop this to you personally. while I am a "fresh out the box"
have background in several other instruments, all have
their little quirks as to easy/better ways to play them. i actually know
a little something about
harmonica though, as far as having an ear
for tunes and an eye for music theory.
Im not sure if most blues
tunes are primarily played in D. but all the ones on your site are, and
I could sit down and play them with my C harp, but It wouldnt
right further down the road when I get my D harp (hohner hoodoo series C
D and G on the way). not to mention your accompaniments (very cool I
add) are for that key.
I think my ultimate point for
this message though, is maybe you could add a "songs by key" link.
Im sure this would be tedious, but it would certainly be helpful,
not to mention I think youd be the only site on the net with a songs by
thank you so much for your time and your help!

A note to let you know how much your site has brightened a life
My Dad, 87, is legally blind, almost deaf and has severe dementia.
As his daughter, I'm constantly searching for things I can do to add
a bit of light to
his pretty boring days.
Dad had played (albeit pretty badly) the harmonica around the
campfire when as kids we went camping. I found your site and
learned a few familiar
tunes he used to play. I tap my hand on
the table to the beat and he plays to the beat. Although we must
drive the neighbors crazy with our terrible sound,
it's such a
delight for him!
One of his favorite songs is "Let There be Peace on Earth" but I
can't find the harmonica version of it and I'm not skilled enough to
figure it out.
Can you direct me somewhere to find this piece
for the harmonica?
Thanks again for your website. It has added great pleasure to one
man's (and daughters) life!

As an Aussi, I noticed that Georgy Girl is credited to
the New Seekers but it was actually The Seekers -
I am just
starting out with the Harmonica and I think your site is great.

If you don’t permit download the midi files, and don’t sell them, so
what are they doing here? If your goal is to appear, hang a watermelon

I have enjoyed your website very much.
I need your help or
suggestion in finding back up tracks on the internet that could be used
to support me in playing the melody part solo.
I am hoping to find
backup music so that I can play the melody solo without another
instrument playing on top of another instrument. Is
there a way to
take the melody line out of the MIDI files . I'm not complaining so
please don't take this as a complaint. It's great to know
that the song is played in and the rate at which it is being played. It
gives me the opportunity to decide which position that
I my choose
to play the song in. I play both Chromatic and Diatonic harmonica. I am
looking for a back up tracks so that I can play gig's solo. I
appreciate the Tab markings and the option of various keys and tempo's
offered for each song. You have done a wonderful job. It is a very
good play along program to learn new songs. Again I am not complaining
,but just asking for your help in finding what I am looking for. There
are plenty of back up tracks for blues but not for known tunes like
you have in your website. Have you ever tried karaoke back up tracks ? I
at a loss as to where to find Thanks again for taking your time
to share with others what you have spent many hours putting this program
and it has been helpful to learn the melody on songs I have
never heard and I know that is what it was created for.

Thank you so much for takeing the time and
trouble to create your website,It rocks!! I have a question; how do you
keep a harp
clean and sanatary? Is it necessary to disassemble and
brush,I am afraid of damaging the reeds but more concerned about
good health. Thanks in advance for your reply,John
December 16, 2009
Hello, I wanted to thank you for creating such a great site. I'd been
asking for the tab or sheet music to "There Is Love", and within a
few days it showed up on your site. So thanks again.
I tried the songcomments e-mail address but it didn't work.

I love your website. In only one day of playing along with your
midi’s, I have noticed a big improvement in my playing. I belong to an
harmonica group in Fairbanks, Alaska called “Hot Denali Harps”.
One song I see missing from your playlist is the ever popular,
“Shenandoah”. Any chance of getting that soon?
Keep up the good

Wonderful site you have there! Harpin' an a Whinin' is just
what I've been looking for! Thank you so much for all of the time and
effort that you've put into
this. (I have a web site and I know it
ain't easy) By the way, your link to the "Banana Boat Song (AKA
Day O)" seems a bit odd. The link itself looks OK,
but the structure
appears kind out of whack to me. Usually when I've seen "also known as"
used it's in lower case (as in WinTux aka Mondo).
Thanks, again for
the wonderful site. I've added a link to it on my web site.

I've seen on your website that they are looking for Ave

I have just visited your Site,
again ....It is great!
I also looked at your pictures and noticed
that you, like me, served in Vietnam from 1969 to 1970. You look quite
familiar; who knows, perhaps are
paths crossed....I served with the
101st Division, Batallion 327th. Greetings from Holland,
May 24, 2009
I started playing the harp on
April 1st of this year. I enjoyed it immediately. I went online and did
a google search and your website came up. I can only say it was the best
thing that could have happened. I
spend hours each day playing along
with the songs. I created a playlist of over 50 songs with windows media
player. I cannot tell you how much joy you have brought to our home.
I've told quite a few people about your site and they are enjoying
it also. I'm trying to put a small group so we can learn to play
together. I wanted to burn a cd with some of your songs so I could take
it to get togethers, but I found out after trying to burn the cd that
the burn rights are not available with the songs on your website.
My question to you is, is it possible for you to make the songs
burnable or do you have cd's of your songs that I can buy? It would mean
so much to us if you can make this happen.
Thanks again for your
website and obvious dedication to us harp players.
Note: the music on my web pages are midi's that
can only be played on computers. They can, however, be converted
to MP3's and burned to
CD's for playing on compatible CD players
including car radios. After conversion, they can also be stored on
MP3 players including the iPod and iPhone.

I visited your page and found it a great addition to my learning
experience; thanks to people like you and Mr. Jack Pearl learning and
understanding turns into an adventure.
Greetings from Holland,
I just found your website and want to thank you for
sharing so much. I just picked up a harmonica a couple
ago and am quickly getting the feel of it thanks to your site.
Additionally navigating around your
site is lots of fun.
Mark, thank you
for all the time and work you put into your website. I am probably
way too old
to start learning the harmonica, but I'm loving
pulling up your site and stumbling along with tabs
It is a real source of enjoyment for me. Since I have no one to
help me or play along
with it, is a great help.
let me say
you have an awesome website!
i'm sorry i came across it only now...

lover to another

First off, I'd just like to say that I love your site. Its really
helped me learn alot, and I thank you for that.
Secondly, do you
think that you could tab "Mr. Tamourine Man" by Bob Dylan? I would
it if you could.
Well, I thank you for your
time, and once again, I thank you for your site.

Hey. I'm basically a noob when it comes to the
harp. I pull it out every couple years, and never really get
anywhere. Since I found your site, i have made more progress in
a couple months than I have in about
5 years, and I actually can
play a couple songs now ;)
Anyways, just wanted to say thanks,
and Im glad for the site!
just to say a big thanks to you mark.i've been playing just short of
three years.your site helped me to pick up
my harps after many years
of trying and not succeeding.i've learned various songs with confidence
play at parties and regular tuesday night jams.i get asked
on many occasion to jump up with many people,
all varied styles .i'm
43 an not afraid to admit your site has helped me grow in confidence.on
and off stage.
so just a mighty thank you for the greatest site .long
may you reign.
THANK YOU Andy R
Thanks for the
great info and enjoyment on your website. While 'clicking around' I
played Amazing Grace in cross harp from your site.
I was 'amazed'
myself at how much more I and my family enjoyed the sound. We are
overseas missionaries and I learned to play 'by
the number' to
have music available in our small group settings. Though not a great
player, by any means- I enjoy it and others at
I would like to
ask if you know where I can get more music already tabbed like your
version of Amazing Grace. It's not only in cross
harp but has
some extra notes which add a lot. I'm interested in hymns and
Christian praise choruses and also some country, folk
I used to listen to the midi on your "oldies" page. I'd love to have
again...what are the chances? Thanks, your site is awesome. Thanks
Note: it was never removed and Nina has been advised where to
find her favorites.

while looking for a harmonica 'teacher'. Your site is basically just
what I have
been searching for for quite a while. Thank you.
June 5, 2008
i enjoyed your site very much - keep on going!
but i have a couple of sugetions:
1) on each song write exactly to which harmonica
it is for. (i'm using a 10 hole diatonic C and on part of the songs
2) encourage people to send you tabs that they
wrote and you will post them after cheking them - that way it would
go faster building the song amount
3) explain exactly what each sign means (Rrrr,
4) a lot of people (like me) arent experts and
dont know exactly what MIDI's and the letters after it - maybe u
5) why dont you just do regular tabs ("sheet
music") so you dont need to say what key it is on?
thank you very much! ang good luck!
p.s. sorry if i bothered you in any way -
just wanted to help!
p.p.s on a chromatic can i play on all keys and

Dear Mr Mark Purintun,
all greetings from India and congratulations on a good website. Thanks
for all the useful information.
I have a humble suggestion: If you
include information about where to include bends in the excellent tabs
you have provided, it will be very helpful and will go a long
way. This is because I recently heard that
beginners (like me) could
damage the harmonica reeds by trying to bend the wrong notes(notes that
not bend normally). So this is my request.
October 31, 2007
probably told you this, but the link for “I only want to be with
you” is pointing to “Here comes the Bride”.
Love your site.
It’s the best harmonica tab site that I’ve seen. The quality
is consistently excellent!

Dear Mr. Purintun,
I wrote you once concerning the left click on the mouse and I'm
sure I thanked you for your tabs as I have
a tin ear, even after
playing and studying music for 30 years! If I didn't, I'm doing it
now, as well as making a
request. Right now I'm into making and
playing the six hole bamboo flute and your tabs work well. (I used
play guitar and harmonica).
My request is for songs by the Outlaws. Hughie Thomasson
recently passed away in my hometown,
Brooksville, Fl. (The same
town Paris Hilton got booted by a horse!)
Without your tabs, (and harptabs.com) I'd be stuck with the
guitar websites and that is so limiting. People
like to hear the

Hi there. You've got a neat site. But how come you don't let
people download stuff. I'm particularly interested in the two midi
versions of Popeye The sailor Man that aren't the same as the
ubiquitous version everybody else's site has. Does one need
special permission or some kind of electronic bracha from
you in order to download to my own computer? Please advise,
you've got some nice stuff.

I am very new to harp (one month). I bought a Lee Oscar C diatonic

why are there two notes parallely? why are the midi files marked

Hey, great site! Can you tab out Wild Weekend by The (Rockin')

parts should be pretty
easy, but I'd also really like to see how you would do the sax part
as a guitar solo. I'll bet
it would make for a great piece for
I think The Ventures covered this song, but I can't seem to find a
copy of their version - any ideas?
August 22, 2007
Thanks for the site!
I've had a harp sitting in front of me for a
year, but found it unapproachable due to my lack of music theory
knowledge and available tabs. I'm happy to say though that with your
site I was able to get a couple of decent
sounding songs out within
about 5-10mins!! Great stuff, keep it up!
BTW if I may be so
bold here are some suggestions I'd like to make to improve the visitors
- The MIDI files sound hideous and forced me to turn off my
speakers :) It's great for learning a song,
but maybe not
the best to come on in the background - at least not without a "shut
up" button. Most
people new website design think gadgets like
this are great, but they just annoy people...... website
rule #1: less is more!
- Some of the pages are not rendering correctly in FireFox and I
had to switch back to IE
- Have you thought of using DreamWeaver or some such WYSIWYG
editor? It'll make your
pages much more browser compatible, XHTML
compiant and separate your style from your
presentation and styles is a bad idea)
Anyway.... I can stick my big nose in where it's not wanted more if
you need advice

I'm glad I could help :) I don't know what all
you do with your files, but you might want to consider giving Musician
a try, as we changed the interface (how the tools are presented)
considerably between 1.0 and 2.1. It's a much more
layout now, rather than the changing palette scheme we had previously.
Also, I visited your harmonica website, and I'll have to share that
with my husband (a harp wannabe) and a drummer
friend of mine who
also loves to play harmonica. You have a well-rounded

Please may I ask for more Blues song tabs with midis ,
for your website, as there are just 3 song tabs at the moment,
need to learn to play some good Blues tunes, and play them along to
a midi. Your website is Fantasic, I have already learned
about 30 tunes from your site, and I can now play each one very
well, but, now I need to learn some good Blues tunes
Please will you let me know if or not you can help me..
April 28, 2007
Great web site and thank you for sharing all the tab
songs. I am 66
years old and just started playing the
harmonica last year. Your site
really is helpful.
April 25, 2007
Hello Mr. Purintun,
My name is Chris Nixon and I absolutly love
your harmonica website. I was recently in a car accident
now I am unable to play guitar so I have used your website to try and
teachmyself harmonica. I really
appreciate what your doing for
everyone. That being said, after searching through your website I
a few errors. They are nothing major just thought i
would inform you of them.
The one error i would love for
you to look at is the midi 4 file under the song of "come monday" isn't
monday... it is "son of a sailor" both being jimmy buffet songs.
Unfortunatly there isn't a tab for "son
of a sailor" on your website
and i was curious if maybe you had a tab for it because there is a midi
file for it.
I have also found that Midi 3 under "ring of fire"
is actually "rhymstone cowboy"
I have also found that under the
section of Harmonicat songs... Midi 1(c100) is on two songs...
as well as "Moonglow". I don't know what song it
really is but it appears twice under different names.
so much for your website... It has been a huge help. I sure do look
forward to learning "son of
a sailor" by Jimmy Buffet if you have the
tab layin around somewhere.
April 6, 2007
It is a shame you don't allow for downloading of the midis. You
could easily have the most
popular site on the web.
Also your wry sense of humor is cute but offensive.
Time for you to grow up.
March 29, 2007
Mark cant thank you enough for the site. I have been teaching myself
the harmonica for a few months and
getting pretty good. But it would
not have been possible without the tabs, so thanks. I was able to locate
Canadian national anthem at ww.Harptabs.com, I dont know if they
are linked on your site. I dont know if
you can help but Im having a
time trying to find " Carolina on my mind" by James Taylor have you seen
March 13, 2007
your lessons page is excellent...the only place I could find on the
web with all the different harps charted out with all
bends...the only problem is that much of your text and images on the
lesson section are overlapping making it
immpossible to read your
lessons....just thought I'd let you know in case you weren't aware..

My name is John Jeansonne, and I play the fiddle for the
country/pop band, Rascal Flatts. I'm a 36 year old Cajun, and have been
fiddling for 28 years. Now this isn't an email to "brag" about
myself. I just feel that it is important to tell you about the person
who has chosen to write to you - me. So..... I've been fiddling for
Rascal Flatts for over five years. Prior to that I played fiddle for
country singer, Lee Ann Womack.
I also play other instruments
besides the fiddle - Cajun accordion, harmonica, mandolin, and
guitar. When I was 13 years old (1983) I won the Louisiana harmonica
championship. In 1985-88 and 1995, I won the Louisiana fiddling
championship. Throughout my childhood and teen years I had a Cajun
band. We would play at festivals and stuff all around Louisiana, Texas,
Anyway.... now that I am finished talking about myself (always
feel embarrassed doing that), I want to simply tell you one thing...
Thank you. Although the fiddle is my primary instrument, the harmonica
is a close second. I just have a passion for playing the harmonica
which I cannot describe. It is such a cool, little, versatile
instrument! I just wanted to take a little time to thank you for your
efforts on your wonderful harmonica website. I visit many of them quite
regularly, but yours is my favorite of them all!
I don't want
anything. It is just that I feel that many take such informative
websites for granted. However, I do not take them for granted. So.....
thanks for your time and effort in creating such a great harmonica

Hi Mister Purintun
I am of Colombia, and my English is not very good.
I am a novice in the harmonica and have visited its page to
look for its tablaturas.
I have a question: Since you update it frequently, how as
they are the new songs?
Excuse the annoyance, but I want to be trying every day.
Thank you very much by its attention and thanks for its page
October 30, 2006
While surfing the net
today, I came across your web page titled Harpin' an' Whinin' I'm
a relative newbie
at playing the harp, and have to confess that
my Chromatic Harmonica has been lying in a cupboard drawer
gathering dust for quite a while now, mainly due to the face I
allowed myself to become discouraged in trying
to master the
instrument. But that all changed today after stumbling across your
web page, which encouraged
me greatly in renewing my interest in
playing. I love the way you have set everything up, and I get
when I find myself being slowly able to play
along with some of the songs background accompaniments.
I intend to attempt to
be able to play at least 3 songs per week from your list.
Keep up the good work,
and I wish you every success with your venture, I will be
recommending to my friends
who are also harp newbies to tune in
to your web.
Could you possibly do a
tab sheet also on that melody that plays when one first joins your
web page. It's
such a lovely tune. so melodic, and haunting. I
did try to play it but I can't find the right key on my harp to
match yours, my Chrom is in the key of C .
Thanks for taking the
time to read this,
October 30, 2006
I came across
your web site today while doing a Google search for harmonica clubs.
Wow! What a lot of effort you’ve put into
it for the
benefit of all us harp players. I’m looking forward to trying
out your tabs. So much there to learn!
trying to learn to play a chromatic harmonica. In fact, one if
the songs I’m struggling with now is “Girl from Ipanema,”
the songs on your One Hit Wonders list. I’m also trying to
learn jazz-like songs such as Toots Thielemans’ “Bluesette” but
haven’t been able to come across any tabs for this type of music
anywhere. Do you have any suggestions where I might dig up
learning aids for this type of harmonica technique, or is this
something you’ll be adding to your site in the future?
playing harmonica when I was 12, a looooong time ago. I
stopped playing in the late ‘80s when I picked up 5 string banjo.
Lately I’ve found myself coming back to the harmonica and am
trying to pick up where I left off. I played lots of blues
my teenage years and into my 30s, but never tried a
chromatic. Now I find myself drawn to the type of music that
lends itself best
to the chrom, so if you have any resource
suggestions for me I’d sure appreciate it.
Thanks again for
putting together such a great web site!

What a monstrously good site you're building!~ I'm some impressed!
Thanks for making it available and so easy to navigate. Great tunes...
Re: One Hit Wonders: here's two
"The Martian Hop"... by the
Galaxies; also by the Ron-dells... circa
1960... [ silly song but I
have a grandkid that loves it ]
"Susie Darlin'"...by Robin
Luke... circa 1959.. [ no horns if you can
help it tho ]
...and, he's hardly a one-hitter, but I would love to hear a midi
version of Bobby Darin's [ done to a cha-lypso beat ] "I'll Be There"
...it's the B side of his Atlantic Records 45 of "Beyond the Sea"... It
was covered in a similar style by Jerry and the Pacemakers. All the
subsequent versions like the Jackson 5's and Whitney's, etc. are slower
and "draggy" to my way of thinking. My opinion only... but Bobby Darin
was one of the all-time great song-stylists.

Dear Mr. Purintun,

possible for you to help me find either the midis for or
these songs, Old Dan Tucker, Runaround Sue, or Betty Lou got a new

but he sang a wonderfull version of it)

I can't imagine any spending that much time building and maintaining
a site to help a bunch of doofuses like me who don't read music! As
you may have heard me casually mention, I just can't abide by tabs.
They just mess me up. So when I feel a song coming on, if I can't
get the words and melody straight in my head, I can't even begin to
make it happen on the harp. So what I do is, I sneak into Mark's
sight like a thief in the night, and pull up the song I want then I
print the words out (all tabbed , Mark even has the timing down now!)
but what I really want is to hear him play it. I listen to him play
the thing. Note that I said LISTEN, I really, really, listen to him
I steal the hell out of his timing, cadence, everyting! The only
thing I don't use is the tabs 'cause lots of times Marks has you
playing along with him and I think this is important for hackers
like me out there to understand. You guys and guyettes need to know
that some of his stuff seems to be designed to be played along WITH
what you are going to hear on your favorite cd! (oh, Mark don't eat
me alive if I'm wrong on this). As an example, last night for me it
was "Help me make it throught the night". I couln't remember how
everything fit, so I dipped into Mark's bag of goodies. But if you
play the tabs he has for that song all alone when you are back in
your easy chair, to my ear you are playing harmony to the melody
that Mark played on the computer. And that is why tabs will mess you
up if you don't watch out. Now if I'm wrong Mark I apoligize ahead
of time, I'm just learning and if I'm having trouble I know there
must be others who are too. This in no way reflects upon my
admiration for your skill and accomplishments. Steve
March 16, 2006
John Rumler here, your pal in Oregon who
requested tabs for Heart of Gold! I wanted to especially thank you
the lead-in and the solos in 75Xtime and isolating
it so i could listen to it over and over. That must have been a hard
tab----because of the strange combination of chords and
notes....Thanks again for the excellent job. Honestly, I was
first few times i tried to play it. I thought it was
beyond me. I finally got it down--because of your advice and tips
and because of
the extra work you did w/the sound files on the
lead and the two solos!!! How you do that i'll never know.
But what a great feeling it is learning
a great song like that!!
With so many things going to hell in
this crazy world your site is a special and fun and positive place
for me and lots of
others. You have been tabbing so many
new songs. Thanks for all you do. Please keep going!
It's by far the best harp site. You even
blow the pay sites away.
You've got a good buddy in Portland,
Oregon---and lots of places around the world.
God bless ya Mark.
Gonna tackle In the Ghetto now. Always
loved that song!

I just found your site last week and feel so happy because all of
the tons of useful information and song tabs.
I am pretty new with the Harp. I got it last Chrismas for my 12
years old boy, but since then it has been ALL MINE
Yesterday I was just thinking about sending a request for you to
take the time and Tab "Take the Long Way Home"
but God, the first thing I saw today in your site was this Tab I was
dreaming on. I can´t believe it´s true!
Well, Mark, I don´t want to waste your time, you better keep on
Tabbing. I really apreciatte your time and effort to
happier (should´ve asked my wife about this...).
I think your web page is great. I was wondering if you could
tab or new where to
get Today I started loving you again-Merle
Haggard. Might be copy protected.
I received Charlie McCoy version on

I can't seem to be able to

Thanks so much!

Thak you! Thank you! Thank you! You have no idea how long I
have been searching for a source of harp tabs.
website is awesome! Very complete with probably the biggest
variety of songs available. My hat's off to
taking the time to put this together. Your contribution to
the harp player's community is HUGE. You have
players years of enjoyment. Please, NEVER stop what you're
If this contributes to your site in any way, I'm attaching a

First of all, thanks for putting this
site together - it has been really useful while I have been
learning to play the harp.
Just wondered if you might be able to
find a midi and / or the tab for 'Minnie the Moocher'. Tried
write one up myself and have not had the best of luck. Also, do you
have the harp lead-in chords
and instrumentals for the 'Piano
Man'? Although I know the tab for the song is here, I have had real
trouble trying to get the chords on the intro right from
listening to the song.

things. Thank you.

October 14, 2005
hey, Thank you for your terrific
harmonica site!! I don't know how many people have thanked you,
but still not enough. I used your site many
times, but the only other time i e-mailed you was when i had a
then i was without my computer for a
month and when i got back on line, i couldn't get your site. For
or another i kept getting that pop up that says THIS
SITE CANNOT BE FOUND and after a week of this I almost
out thinking your site must be gone.
Thank God it is still here. Hurray!!!
I appreciate it very much and THANK YOU for all you do. Your site is
better than even the pay sites, the windbag type self
promoters like Jon Gindick who (yeah, he plays quite good) charge
an arm and leg and offer nothing for free and send out a ton of
spam. Your site is the only one that offers the entire tab,
just a little solo and a midi file to listen to it and practice.
Tabs--at least to me---aren't too helpful if I don't really
a tune by heart and there aren't to many of those. 12-bar blues
would be another good one!!!!
hint, hint, (subtle aren't i???)
I'd be glad to contribute something to
your site if you are accepting donations. I'd be happy to send a
check through snail mail....
Also, I've been trying to figure out
how to play Neil Young's Heart of Gold, not just the intro or the
little solo, but the

appreciate it. Sounds easy to play, but for me very hard to figure
going, your site really cranks and I get a buzz
every time you put another tune up. YEHAW! I enjoy the hell out of

Nice to see you upgrading the site. Many tabs here have been
helpful to me.
thanks for your hard work..
September 28, 2005
I just had to tell you what a great help your site has been to
me over the few years i've been playing harmonica. Thanks for all the
hard work. Don't know what i would have done without all the tabs!!
There are a lot of people i talk to at
Harmonicaclub.com that feel the same way.
September 16, 2005
Thanks for that! Been looking everywhere for a
boogie woogie tab, my
band and I had great fun with this last night!
September 15, 2005
just retired and have decided to learn how to play the harmonica.
Your site is wonderful. Thank you for all the effort you have
put into it. The songs are a little advanced for me now, but
maybe is a couple of months, I can play some of them.
Thanks again. Your work is appreciated.

Mark, Good morning
to you and your family.
I am listening to
Ramblin' Rose, and want to thank
you again for your
Site. I enjoy the music each
and every day. I am
so happy I discovered it, too.
Did you ever get an
"In God We Trust" on
any envelope you mail?
I think it's a good
practice, and I have been doing this.
Have a great day.
September 8, 2005
Mark - I am so glad my email reached you,
but my jaw dropped when I saw the work you have been doing.
have been looking for something like this, but because I played by ear,
I really didn't know how to post a
question about these notes.
You seem know so much about music. I will have to study your
before I can really tell you anything. I only know
that I tried so hard to learn the tabs to songs that it became
of a barrier than anything, I had to hear the instruments play. I
have found that mainly string seems to
work best with harmonica.
Thank you so much for the information, and any extra I come up with by
ear I will
pass on to you, I hope it will help.

I just wanted to say thanks for everything. It has been a while
since I checked out
your web-site and it is looking good, and
my... the wealth of information, etc., is just so great!
'On, and on and on..." :) It is nice that you share your personal
life too, family, events.. etc.,
In today's cold world of computers and technology so much of
the human aspect is missing.. so thanks for keeping it real.
I especially want to say thank you for the humor today--I am not
sure if you have been doing this for a
while or not as (like I
said, it has been a while), but I am going through a really rough
time right now, and
I actually laughed out loud and it just felt
so good to be okay for a minute.
Best to you and yours, thanks again,

Hello I was
surfing the web the other day when I found out about your site, now I

question about your site, Will it work for Richter harmonicas or is it
only for Diatonic Harmonicas? thank you for your time,
March 2, 2005
I like your site it;s just that I do'nt
understand some things. I am 68yrs. and have been playing harp for
years now. I play for my own amazement. Most of the songs
you tab. are in the key of D.They can be played
on any key harp
the pattern should always be the same.I have a C and B flat harp so
I try to find midi in those keys
to play along with.I see in one
of your colums is headed Key. For instance C/F and of course the
song is tabed D.
What does this mean?? I do'nt exspect a reply.
I can play a couple of tunes cross harp G.

Hello Mark, my name is Michael, a
new but frequent visitor to your website. I just started playing
the harmonica over the last couple months or so as to continue my
grandfather’s legacy. I have to say this
is the most
unbelievable sight I have found. I thank you so much for
tabbing/acquiring these songs, it has
really helped me practice
and get somewhat better. I started out on an old Hohner Chromonica
only to later
realize it is more complex than a diatonic.
Anyway, my point of writing to you was in regard to one song…
House of the Rising Sun. I have been practicing it non-stop but
can’t seem to hit that draw 10 note. Is there
any way to play
the whole song in a lower octave without having to re-tab the whole
song? If not, do you have
any suggestions on how I can possibly
play the higher notes, especially with a draw so that it doesn’t
like a squealing pig? I appreciate any information you can
provide me with.
January 28, 2005
Just ran across you site a couple of days
ago while surfing for harmonica websites. You have done a superb
job with content
and presentation. I tried to play the harp
about 60 years ago, but didn't stick with it, since there was no real
real instruction around.
Now I'm 72. I decided to try
again. i bought some good harps in C, D, A & F. I'm really
excited with my progress. I'm still pretty
average at bending,
but I'm progressing. Your website will be invaluable to me, along
with instruction CDs I bought, Thanks again
for your valuable
contribution in making playing the harp seem not quite so intimidating.

heya mark, today was my first time at

Hi Mark! I just found your web site "Harpin and a Whinin" and think
its great! I'm an amateur acousic guitar and harmonica
and like everyone else would like to improve. I wanted to download
some midis you have posted and burn them to cd
to use a portable
practice media to play my guitar and harmonica over them, but cannot
seem to find the files from my Roxio
CD creator. Is that
because midis cannot be burnt to CD? Is there a way to convert them
to wave files then? Should I be
looking into a device such as a
POD to do what I want? Or would I have the same problem? Thanks
Mark if you can point me
in the right direction..

Althought you have a lot of tabs over
your site, I'm still after several I couldn't find anywhere! and
they are actually the reason
I wanted a harmonica anyways.
Spaghetti movies tabs! Western melodies

I'm also after Kill Bills main title,
The grand Dual which has a BEAUTIFUL harmonica piece in it.
Is there a chance you could help me out?
I've tried tabbing songs myself, but apart from several notes I
managed to acquire,
I couldn't create a full scale melody.

I would like to begin
this email by saying that I absolutely love your site. The tabs
that I get off of it...
I would be lost without them. Since I
have started playing harmonica, I hear songs every once in a while that
make me say to myself, "Geez, that would be a great song to be able to
play." Well, one song hit me recently
that I positively love,
and dearly wish that I could play. It is called "Hallelujah" by
Rufus Wainwright, and
it is in the move "Shrek". I have fallen
in love with this song and REALLY want to know how to play it. My
question to you: is there any way that you could tab this for me?
I realize that this is asking a lot, but I
thought it was worth a
try. I would post it on Harptalk, but I know that many people are
horribly against tabs,
and I don't want to be yelled at.
Thanks for your time,

What an incredible site. I have a

I'm coming along ok. More than anything, I want to be able
to play Blue Skies (Willie Nelson) a very
soulful version. But
I can't even find the tab anywhere for it on the web. Oddly enough,
it was hearing
willie on the harp on this song really blowing it
out that made me want to play. Unfortunately I don't
the talent yet to figure it out and tab it.
You have an incredible list and
your site is the most impressive harp site I've seen. In fact
I have it
on my favorites list!

see more classic rock type songs at your web site. I personally
tabulated "Dust in the Wind" By Kansas, though it still needs some
tweaking, and would gladly and it to you. I have also a small
portion of "winds of change" by Scorpions tabulatede. But I would
like to see more of these type of songs. I would like to see tabs
for "Ghost of tom joad" by Bruce Springsteen, or "Still loving you" By

the void in my life. I will let you know how I do.

Mark, I'm issuing you a long overdue thanks for creating your 'song key'
website; I have used
it for the past month or so, picking
appropriate songs, in appropriate keys to practice with, and although my
harp skills on the scale of 1 to 10 were probably at 3.5, I now feel
I'm up to 4.5 and climbing!
One song I haven't been able to
find is "Red Sails In The Sunset". But Wow, I don't know how you
find the time
to do all you've done! (and still under
construction!) Enjoy those little bits of humour at page bottoms!

I've just started learning the
harmonica, and I have to say that your website is by far the best harp
site on the Internet. You've put lost of great songs up in
an easy-to-read format. The only request I've
got is that it
would be great to have a "new songs" section where you list the latest

site is just marvelous. I teach kids to play the harmonica.
This has some wonderful songs on it
that the kids can play along
with, which will help them play better. Just wanted to tell
you to keep up the
good work. We are a relatively new
not-for-profit organization and we provide free of charge the harmonica
instructions to the kids. This crazy world need some harp

I am a harmonica player and I have
fallen in love with playing. I had searched the internet for
that was not interested in money but in the love of music.
And your website is the leader of the pack. I come
wondering if you have ever tabbed any of big sugar's songs. And if
not, I would ask that you give it a shot.

If any of you want to hear some
nice music with a great piece called "AMERICA" with Hurricane Ramon
AKA email@example.com , go
http://www.dataflo.net/~mpurintun/index.htm. AMERICA is on the
side of the Home page, Also go to the end of the index
on the left side and punch in "harp-links". Go
down aways and
you will see Hurricane modeling the newest thing in caps. (A little
something left over from WW1
Hurricane is a great harper and you
should do your ears a favor and give it a listen.

Hey Mark, been meaning to tell you
I've gotten a lot of good use out of your site. Can't really use
tabs with my chroms, except using the "tab-Slide Guide Chart"
backwards putting them into music notation,
but your midi files are
always simple enough to break down easily with mid notation software.
And if one
key doesn't play right, you've always got alternate keys.
Everything I've tried has been very playable.

Mark. That's one I hadn't seen yet, and do you ever have
loaded with goods! I think it's gonna take me some time to read,
digest, and understand it all. I think I'll learn a lot there.
chance you'll post anything off of "The Best of ZZ Top",
specifically "Lagrange" or "Jesus Just Left Chicago"?

I found your
site by chance, and though the music is a little corny, and not bluesy
enough for my taste,
I thank you for letting me into your world.
I want to play the harmonica.

Thank you so much for your website. It
will certainly help me play along with some of the tunes you have
included there. I used to play a chrom many years ago, but I kinda
put it down and didn't pick it up until
just recently. Now it
seems I will have to learn all over again.. My old chrom is not so
good any more so
I bought me a Hohner CX12. I hope this will
work for me. Anyway you really have something going on here.
I know it will help. Thanx again,

your website is developing nicely, it must be a super time consumer for
you at times, the info there
is solid. What you might include
with the harp tabs is the chordial sequences as a compliment to the
I know I just made you "cringe" a tad as I know just how
hard you have been working at your website's building.
Circle of Fifths is really a nice think with the minor keys included, a
very cool thing.

Friends of the Harmonica,
a great site I found with lotsa songs charted for harmonica and many
with MIDI sound files to play.
Maybe the next song you want to
learn is here! He's got lots of fun animations and the page is
with a sense of humor.
you explain the Circle of Fifths?
Do you know the hand signs
musicians use to indicate the key to others on stage?
How Great Thou Art
January 04, 2004
I just discovered your site this morning via the Harpin group. Wow
I have been playing harp for the
last twenty-five years. For
my own enjoyment, and not very good. I have had more fun today
playing your tab
songs than in all of the last many years. I would
gladly pay for a book, in fact I have, many times! but your
songs are so easy to play and the accompanyment really makes it easy.
Sometimes even old songs, I just have
trouble remembering how they
go, or at least the whole song. (I'm going to be 70 this Mo.)
Thanks a million,
and man, you have really put a lot of work in and
it is really appreciated!
