Hey Sonic Junction, I'm back with the 8th and final verse of this thing we're calling "Half Steppin". This last verse is another "riff" type verse and this one really reminds me of the kind of thing a big band horn section might do. It's mostly working with the three hole draw, going between the natural major 3rd and the flat 3rd. By this being the last verse of the song, we wrap it up differently than the other verses - We've got to let people know that it's the end, so we don't use that recurring, resolving lick - Instead we're announcing the finish with an ending lick that leaves the listener no room for confusion. Above all, I hope you've had some fun and made friends with these bends while we've been Half Steppin' - at the very least, I bet you've improved your relationship with those bends on holes two and three!
See you next time!
