[Demonstration] Hi everybody, welcome to www.onlinelessonvideos.com. My name is Sandy Weltman. Today, we’re going to be learning how to play in what’s called 12 position which is kind of like the key of F on a C harmonica as suppose to 2 position which is the key of G on a C harmonica. And 12th position is a great position to play in if you're going to play some swing or jazz music. We’re going to be learning today some basic patterns and scales that will get us familiar with 12 position. Then we’re going to learn a really great tune of standard in the harmonica world called Peg O' My Heart, originally published in 1914 of course made famous by the harmonicats. So, today we’re going to be using a harmonica in the key of G. and if you haven’t already printed out your tablature, go ahead and do that. Then we will go ahead and get started. First exercise is this major scale and this could feel a little funny if you’ve never played in 12 position before. Our root note or our home base is going to be an F of course since we’re playing an F. And that's going to start off on the two bend to the 2nd bend on hole two. We’re going to play these just going up one octave. So, the top root note of our scale is going to be at the five draw, F to F. So it's going to sound like this— [Demonstration] The next thing we’re going to do is learn to play what’s called a turnaround. And a turnaround is usually just a two-bar, two-measure of raise that helps connect passages in a song especially between verses or choruses. This is one that's not too hard to play in 12 position. It will give you an even better feel for 12 position. So, let’s go ahead and take a look at it. Okay, here is our turnaround in 12 position down in the first octave of the harmonica. We’re going to be starting it on the F note which is the two bend two. So, I'll go ahead and play it first for you so you can hear what it sounds like. [Demonstration] And what that is really is I'm playing— For our turnarounds, we’re going to play through them three times slowly and then go right into them four times at a double speed with our rhythm track. So here we go. [Demonstration]
