In this lesson we'll focus even more on the hand effects that are commonly called "wah, wahs". I'll explain and demonstrate the differences in beginning and ending notes with cupped, closed hands vs beginning or ending with open hands, and doing those hand effects in conjunction with bends.
Hopefully helping you learn to "speechify" the harp so you can make it "say" what you want it to "say". This week it's not only "wah, wah" but "ow" and "wow".
