    I have always had a knack for musical instruments one being the harmonica....I can play that sucka by ear, and lately, I've busted out over 50 tunes. Today, I taught myself:

    Three Amigos
    American Tail
    Layla by Clapton
    Theme From Dallas
    Estoy Aquí by Shakira
    Rockabybaby
    Rudy
    Lean On Me
    Eine Kliene by Mozart

    Can you guys think of any others? (btw, Forrest Gump, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, & Apollo 13 work awesome)

    I don't play the harmonica, but if you want to hear some amazing work on one, check out James Conway's CD, which I just reviewed for dOc.

    I used to dabble. I taught myself simple stuff like Piano Man, Love Me Do, the beginning to Blues Traveler's But Anyway (before it goes into that really fast difficult stuff).

    The most fun thing to do is just knock out cliche blues riffs and make up lame white-boy blues songs. Served best with lots of beer.

    I too dabbled, during my high school 'The Blues Brothers' phase. (mid 80s by the way)

    "Jodel" by Son Volt immediately comes to mind...

    The harmonica part in Uncle Tupelo's "Moonshiner" is excellent, but I'm not sure how nice the entire song would sound on a harmonica.
