Love Me Do Harp

If you are over 40 and play harmonica, there is a good chance you were inspired to play after hearing the Beatles sing that wonderful song “Love Me Do”. The harmonica part is unmistakeable whether played with the song or while on the front porch. John Lennon played a chromatic on the song. It is probably the best instrument to use when covering Love Me Do. However, many tribute bands and groups like to play the song and don’t have a dedicated player for the harmonica part. This means one of the members has to either abandon his primary instrument or play it on a harp rack. Featured here is a specialty tuned diatonic harmonica that has all the notes in the lead and solo part to play “Love Me Do” without the need for bends. The tuning is as follows:

D F G C C E G C E G – BLOW

E F# A B D F A B D F – DRAW
