"Hi, my name is Marcus Milius. I play harmonica. I got a degree at the University of Southern California, a Bachelor's of Music, in Jazz Studies - Chromatic Harmonica. I play and teach harmonica here in New York City, and I'm happy to show you what I do.

Alright, learning Amazing Grace. I'm going to be playing this in second position on a C harmonica, that's the key of G. So, that will start on one draw, to a two draw, and then a triplet on three draw, three draw whole step and two draw. Back to a three draw. Let's play that much together. Second phrase is. That's three draw whole step and two draw, two blow, one draw. Then, the third phrase, same as the first. That's one draw, two draw, three draw, three draw whole step bend, two draw, three draw. Next is the short phrase, three draw whole step and to four draw. Fifth phrase is five blow, four draw, three draw, three draw whole step bend, two draw, three draw, that sounds like this. Then, three draw whole step bend, two draw, two blow, one draw. Very last phrase is three draw whole step bend, two draw."
