Hello Everyone! Welcome back to my 3rd Position piece “Third Is The Word”, where this week we cover Chorus 5 and utilize almost two full octaves of the harmonica. The beginning of this chorus has us doing a little bit of call & response with ourselves, only to move further up the harp and move into the high end of the middle octave. Also, we will be playing a long wailing note in there, so be sure you have good control of your breath, or you may turn a little blue…Word!
