Hold your Hohner with one hand at each end
Hold it with pride it’ll be a good friend
See that the numbers are on top facing you
The music holes now are in very good view
Holes 4-5-6-7 you will see
Play the notes of the song or the melody
Place your tongue over 1-2-3
And hole 4 will blow free
First blow into 4 and that is note C
Draw out of 4 and you have note D
Blow into 5 – it’s E and it’s fun
Draw it out of F – and your music’s begun
For G you blow 6 and you draw out to get A
Then for B you draw out of 7 – Hooray!
You’re now up to C complete your run
You blow into 7 – that’s C – your scales done.
Practice to blow and to draw till you know
You’ve got it down pat and you’re ready to go.
Now lift your tongue on and off the first three
You’ll get your chords to back your melody
Just use this “tonguing” whenever you play
And you’ll have wonderful music the Hohner way
Blow the up arrow, draw for a down one
And the length of the arrow gives that of the one
