Play hundreds of awesome songs

Unlike other small and portable musical instruments (jaw harp, kazoo, and slide whistle, we're looking in your direction) the Little Lady mini harmonica packs a full eight-note C-Major scale into its tiny frame, so you can play tons of songs.

Yes, you can play the main riff to Piano Man by Billy Joel. Frankly, being able to bust out that riff anywhere you go is worth every penny of the Little Lady.

With eight reeds, the Little Lady Harmonica boasts a full octave in C Major.

Here are a few other ditties you can play on this little gem: Jingle Bells, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star (aka the Alphabet Song), Mary Had a Little Lamb, Hot Cross Buns (from piano class, remember?), Batman theme song, Superman theme song, Jeopardy! theme song, Low Rider, Spring from the Four Seasons by Vivaldi (to show off your sophistication), Sesame Street theme song, Love Me Do by The Beatles, Deck the Halls, etc. There are hundreds of great melodies that only use one octave in a major key.
