Lookin' Sharp

Fourth Chorus Breakdown

Hi Everyone -

This week on Sonic Junction we break down Chorus Four, which is the last chorus of 2nd Position playing in my tribute to George “Harmonica” Smith, “Lookin’ Sharp”. This chorus starts building up more intensity, as we use more tension with root note attack, trills, and octaves including those dramatic high 5-hole draw octaves which were all such a big part of George “Harmonica” Smith’s unique style.
