Hi Harpsters of Sonic Junction! This week, as we tackle chorus 3 of “Keep The Change”, we will add some tonguing techniques and growling, to go along with the changes on 3 draw. If you are not doing so already, please make a regular routine out of practicing your half, whole, and step and a half bends on your 3 draw with a tuner. For blues purposes sometimes these notes are better when they are not exact, but as a musician you want to know where the exact notes are at least, and that will come with practice. This chorus was the first idea I had of this song, and was inspired by saxophone instrumentals from the 1950’s - Enjoy!!
