This week we will start to break down my I-chord piece “Boogie On The I”. Utilizing a D Harp in the key of A we will be using mostly the Blues Scale, but really milking these bends. We want to get some dirt on these bends with some distortion, and create tension with how slowly we scoop up on some of these bends. This is an important part for the feel of this tune, especially when it is paired with this rockin’ rhythm guitar. So work on slowly scooping these distorted or dirty bends, and feeling this Boogie groove without it making you breathe too fast. If you are in control of your breath while playing Harp, you will be able to tackle anything!
Have fun with this first section and see you next week for more!
