Brian... this is a very similar exercise that I originally learned
from a Norton Buffalo DVD many years ago, but it was pretty much just
in the middle octave.

A few years ago Lee Sankey did a video demonstrating the same
exercise, but on all three octaves, and I recognized it right away
from being the same exercise that Norton demonstrated... it is a great
exercise... great 1st position exercise !

Lee's video is here...

> I wrote this exercise (Ex. B) and others in 2004-2005, because I wanted to build speed in my playing. I took 1/16 note runs from John Popper and Sugar Blue and turned them into long exercises for the diatonic harmonica. They can be played on any key diatonic harmonica, I choose a Bb harmonica for this video. These exercises have certainly helped my playing speed and my student's too! The sheetmusic/tab is available on PDF, make a $2 donation with a note of interest and your email, I will send it to you.
