Hi Rick !! thank you !! appreciate the advice as usual and i will tare of the chords !!
Hi Aalt !! thank you ... but my problem was that my bends were" to the floor "out of tune , too much flat if you know what I mean , but thank you for your advice ... it s cool to me that people care !!
Thank you Larry !! as usual , I appreciate your comments !!
Hi Rick !! I think it s better with the bends then the other time .... any comments ??
Hey Andre! Great job on improving those bends, and memorizing the licks! And, just like Larry said - REALLY nice tongue flutter! Larry's also correct in suggesting that you play the rhythm chords mo softly. Overal, great job!
Thank you Rick !! understood !!
Hi Rick !! sometimes to me it s valuable to understand the meaning of the English ... so , what do you mean when you say that on the 1 ; you worrying the 3 hole bent and you say it s a "vocal sound" ?? what do you mean by Vocal sound ??
Hi Andre, by "worrying" the note, I mean using bends as an effect. The way I'm starting the verse on that third hole and using the bends and "worrying" the note to produce an effect that's reminiscent of the human voice - that is what I mean by "vocal" sound. I hope that helps.
Thank you Rick !! make sense again .... looking forward to see you !!
Hi Rick !! i d like to know ; on the 1 , is there ghost blow or draw chords between the Bop Bop ??
Hi Andre - Good ear! Usually there is a little exhale ghost chord in that spot.
Hey Rick !! just want to tell you ... What a "Deal" to have you on this Site .... 13 song yet ... and you know What ?!! to me .. it s a Gold mine !! there so much !! I m on the right track Man ... you re the Real Deal Rick !!
Thanks Andre - I've watched you improve your playing tremendously, so if these Sonic Junction lessons have anything to do with that, I mu be doing alright!
Hey Bill !! thanks for the answer and yeah ?!! why not try it ??. though it s not an easy one ... I didn t try it yet but ... I will , anyways is just that I read so many good comments of you around time , that I m curious about you and it s not to be judge ... it s you always there playing and I ackwoledge that fact ... It s hard to me to be discipline ... so that it s ... congratulation ... but I will get there ... it s too fun to do it !! there s so much with Rick !! so much !!
Hi Bill !! if it s possible ?? I d like to ear you once ... with all the work you put into all of these songs since a lot of time that i m reading your comments ... anyway ... if it s not possible ?? keep the good work !!
HI Rick !! I d like to know your comments ... it s not fluent yet ... and I m trying to make a little vibrato at the end of the notes ... not there yet !! thanks
Wow Rick ... that s the Scariest thing I ve heard lately .... définitely want to play with intentional slop !! love that s stuff !! witch album of Cotton would you recommand with that stuff ?? thanks a lot !!
There's a CD series called Chicago The Blues Today - Volume 2 of that series has some songs by the Jimmy Cotton Blues Quartet. Get that! Get The Blues Never Die, by Otis Spann. Get Johnny Young's Chicago Blues Band on Arhoolie records. Those'll be a great place to start
Yeah !! I m sure you do !!
I eared that song long time ago at Manny s Car Wash by you Rick !! I think It was in 1996 or so ?? That was the only time that you played in the high end of the harp ... and Yeah the "dinamyc" of that song to me , Really intense !! Love that song !! thanks Rick !!
Yeah, Lightnin' was part of the LC repertoire for decades! Glad you like it!
Thanks Rick and Larry !! by the way Larry ... just write English please ... i ll do the work to translate ... because when you put I don t know what to translate ?? It s not really doing the "trick" in French ... and thanks for the explanation !!
Hey Rick and Larry !! you re right when I bend on the 2 and 3 hole ... I m Flat !! it s amazing how pros like you can ear things loll ... i ll have to work on these .... but on the other hand .... I ll have more control of the phrasing that you do Rick on a lot of songs in SJ whit the 2 and 3 hole that Really amaze me !! hope you have great holidays ?!!
That's important stuff to learn! And don't feel bad - I didn hear all that stuff in my own playing right away either!
Thank you Larry !! I appreciate ... sometimes English it s not that easy to find the core of the "story" to me ... and when it s about harp ... I really want to understand !! thanks again !!
