Hi there fellow harpsters!
This week on Sonic Junction we dive into the second chorus of my “Scaled Down” blues scale study piece. I will be taking parts of the blues scale and making little riffs out of it, and also will be utilizing repetition to build up some tension and excitement here. In addition, this chorus will also have some distorted notes, and I will talk a bit about playing over a quicker and more aggressive rhythm, such as the one in this song.
Grab your harps, start groovin’, and I’ll see you next week!
