About the Author

Harmonica Music Publishing Inc., USA was founded by Marcos - "Mr. Harmonica" - to bring the joy of playing musical instruments, especially the harmonica, to everyone - young and old - around the world. With his unique Harmonica Learning System, Marcos absolutely guarantees that you'll be playing songs in minutes. There's not a musical note in site - just easy-to-follow arrows and numbers.

Marcos is known to audiences and harmonica enthusiasts simply as "Marcos", or "Mr. Harmonica". His trademark, the bandolera harmonica holder, is just one example of his flair for the dramatic. He first made his mark in the music industry as a studio musician, artist and nightclub performer in Los Angeles and Nashville for 25 years.

Marcos Plays Blues Marcos targets everyone - ages 7 to 70, male and female. As a result, How to Play Harmonica Instantly does not attempt to zero in on one particular style of playing. "Our goal is to teach people how to play the harmonica. To make the package user friendly we offer three different options to get novices to learn it instantly. We start instruction at a much more basic level than even the instruction sheet that comes with harmonicas. If one way doesn't work, try another. I didn't mind throwing a lot of stuff in there. It was like throwing extra oregano in the spaghetti sauce."

In all, Marcos has ten publications which are combined in more than 40 different packages. "Once you get someone involved, once they get the fever, they'll do anything to progress. It's been exciting to be part of that. I've been richly rewarded with all of the success stories I've received, turning hundreds of thousands of people on to the harmonica."

Don't bother with the sample. Just shows the cover. So irritated by wasting my time, not going to buy. Is showing a part of book a turn off?
