Hi Harpers -
This week we start dissecting my Split The Difference piece, and we look into the split interval/octaves technique on the diatonic harp. As with any technique, it’s always a good idea to make sure you work on the technique by itself first before using it in a solo or song. So, if this technique is completely new to you, set aside some time to work on these tongue-split intervals and octaves that I explain. If you have been doing them, but not always cleanly, here is your chance to brush up on the technique…so dive in and have some fun with these octaves!
