Hello Harpers of Sonic Junction!
I hope you are enjoying this chromatic piece here, and this week we have some more blues scale style licks and more tongue-vamping that sounds so cool on the chromatic harp. Again with this section, I play around with the phrasing more than with varying the notes, so this will be good practice to start working on new phrasing ideas and rhythmic approaches to your phrases. If you ever lose your place while working on a phrase that is new for you, it may be a good idea to listen to the song and count the beats to yourself while I play the notes, and you can hear how the notes I play are connected to the beats and the timing. I know you can do this, so what are you waiting for - have fun with it!
