Have you ever wanted to learn how to play the harmonica, but either could not find a teacher or did not have the time for it? Well, now you can pursue this activity all from the comfort of your own home! All you have to do is download Bendometer Playing System. This program is a harmonica software that uses a microphone to effectively teach you how to play bends, overblows, and even whole songs in harmonica tab format.
Bendometer Playing System is easy to use, and makes learning these techniques fun and enjoyable. When you first open the program, the first screen you will see is the simulated harmonica notation. When you see this, it means that Bendometer Playing System is ready to help you out. You then start playing the notes you see, and as you do the specific notes you are on will light up. This helps you maintain an accurate pitch all the way through the passage.
For reference, the upper row above the numbers represents the blow notes, and the rows below the numbers are the draw notes in which you are supposed to breathe in. With this simple format, it is easy to understand the tablature. Although this program is very good, sometimes it has a bit of trouble picking up your notes. If this happens, you just need to hold the microphone directly up to the harmonica while you play. This helps to get a much more accurate note detection in most cases.
So try out Bendometer Playing System today, and begin learning how to play the harmonica in minutes!
