"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. Beatbox on harmonica, you'll want to check out one of the greats, Yuri Lane, but this is just a very simple version of what he does. Basically, you want to make sure that you're putting the draw chord on beats two and four and in between that, you want to be blowing but creating some kind of articulation of a drum sound with your mouth. So, the draw chord will be without an articulation on beats two and four that will sound like this. One, two, three, four, one, three, one,three. So you're going to fill in the one and the three, with some kind of vocal percussion, and there could be any kind of variety. So, you're going to blow and grade the vocal percussion like this, and then the draw chord on two and four."
