Dennis Gruenling here, welcoming back all you harmonica players for the second chorus of my “Keep The Change” study piece. This week, as with this whole piece, we are paying attention to subtle changes on the holes 2 and 3 to go along with the chord changes. In particular, there will be plenty of dips (bending down with a bent note) and scoops (bending up with a bent note), so your bending technique will be getting a big workout. Remember that a little goes a long way, and the key to mastering bends on the harmonica is in subtle small changes in your airstream and embouchure.
Have at it and have FUN!
