How to Play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on the Harmonica

Here is how to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on a diatonic harmonica.

"Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" is a popular English lullaby. The lyrics are from an early 19th-century English poem by Jane Taylor, "The Star". The poem, which is in couplet form, was first published in 1806 in Rhymes for the Nursery, a collection of poems by Taylor and her sister Ann. It is sung to the tune of the French melody Ah! vous dirai-je, maman, which was published in 1761 and later arranged by several composers including Mozart with Twelve Variations on "Ah vous dirai-je, Maman".[1] The English lyrics have five stanzas, although only the first is widely known. It has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 7666. This song is usually performed in the key of C major.

You will notice that in the video I said it was by Mozart, I actually didn't realise that he had actually only arranged an already known tune, but in any case this new information does not take away from the over all tutorial.
