This week we'll be tackling the 3rd verse of the piece we've been calling "Cotton Blend". This verse starts out with some split tongue work and a little internal "call and response". The lesson also involves a lot of bending and what I call "note shaping" by making hand adjustments in conjunction with the bends.
Developing these techniques is going to provide you with a bigger sonic palette and adding more emotion and expression to your harp playing.
