This week we'll be working on the entire last verse of the piece I named "Cotton Blend". This last verse references the theme from the head and contains many of the elements we've already addressed in previous weeks - use of the split tongue technique on the 2/5 holes for a partial 7th chord, half and full step bends on the 2nd and 3rd holes, some double stops or "intentional slop", some hand shaping and tonal contrast, finishing up with a big, broad vibrato at the end.
