Hey Harp Gang - Dennis Gruenling here this week to wrap up my chromatic piece “Two For One”. For this last part we build up the phrasing and move around a little bit more while using the split octave technique on the chromatic. It sounds BIG once you get a clean technique down, so just practice a few minutes making sure to clean up your technique if it doesn’t sound quite right for you yet. Again, once you have the technique down clean, it’s the same for each split octave on this harp, so it then just becomes a case of moving around and becoming comfortable with this technique. I hope you’ve been enjoying this piece and this BIG sound you can now get on the chromatic harmonica!
