By far, harmonica music is written and shared in tabs instead of in standard musical notation. Of course, once you are really oriented toward harmonica playing you can then apply your music notation reading skills.
Another reason for the domination of harmonica tabs is the sort of oral tradition that harmonica playing has. Harmonicas are played by all sorts of people, all over the world. They carry harmonicas in their pockets, pouches, purses, backpacks, and play whenever they feel like it or whenever it feels like it would do them or someone else some good. In fact, in the Blues tradition, very few players read music at all.
In most cases, it really helps to either know the song, or else have a recording of the song using the harmonica tabs that are given. Then you can look at the layout of a C and G harmonica and find out where the notes are. I am confident if you try my lessons with a 10 hole diatonic you will find it much easier. Are all these Tabs played on a key of C harmonica? I have a set of seven Hohner harmonicas.
