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 !!
thank you Ivan !! I liked the whole thing that you did ... congratulation !!
Thank you Larry !! English is not my first language and i m not sure to really understand the "essence" of your comment ... I understand that I have to play with less effort and I will ... so if it s not too much ?? could you write it in another way because I really want to understand and I really appreciate that you take time to comment ... Have a good day !!
Thank you Rick !! I will pay close attention on the 3rd hole
Hi Rick and others !! any comments ??
Wow Andre, I really like your tongue switch technique!!
Hey Manuel !! don t force it ... stay relax ... it will come , for Sure ... and later it will help because there so many things you will do with tongue block ... you ll see !!
Hi Manuel !! to answer your question , I will say that you Should pratice bending with tongue block ... to me , you have no choice if you want to get deeper in you playing , and for instance there a couple of Rick Estrin song on the Site ... that if you Realy want to groove and be able to have a good "grip" on the phrasing , you should bend with tongue block ... practice slowly bending wilth tongue block , and the "control" will come , it did to me !! ... hope it s gonna help ??
Hi Andre, thanks a lot for the prompt reply and your thoughts. Now I know what to do for the next weeks, months... ;-) Great, entering a new terrain... my harps and me, we are ready for this journey! I am looking forward to it.
Wow ... The Groove or the Rhythm ... I don t know loll ... but the way that Verse is constructed ... so good !!
it make sense !! But you do it so subtle that I thought at some place it was pursed lip ...
thank you Rick!!
