Hello Sonic Junctioneers!
This week we start working on my new “Scaled Down” piece, in 2nd position on a G harmonica. This piece uses ONLY notes in the blues scale, and I particularly crafted the “head” of the song (otherwise known as the "theme”) with a run straight up the blues scale. Scales are important to know, since they will help get a particular sound while playing music, and once you are comfortable with it, it takes the guess work out of going for a specific mood.
Grab your G harps, start working that blues scale, and ENJOY!
