New Beginnings (Melody)

I'm too new to blues harmonica to effectively improvise upon a jam track and create bluesy music. Single notes are fine for me though. So this one is a simple melody I have set upon a backing track by Elite Backing Tracks called New Beginnings. I have kept the title same because this is my new beginning as well. I have used Audacity for recording on PC and I'm playing a Marine Band 1896/ Key A.  Thank you for allowing me to share, would really appreciate any observations/suggestions.


Nice melody, thank you for

Nice melody, thank you for contributing. My quick suggestion is for you to explore using a throat tremolo on all of your long-held notes. As you continue your studies on the site you'll also learn about two-note combinations and octave playing... these will also give you some more color options. Thank you again.

Thank you.

Thank you sir for your ideas. With an attempt to improve, I have submitted a new version of this melody again.
