Dennis

Are you tongue blocking on the trills ?

If not- when do you switch? TB the down riff? or only when you get to the 2 draw vamp?

Thx

Chris

Hi - good question. I am tongue-blocking on basically everything you hear me play, unless I specifically mention I am not tongue-blocking, or there is a tongue articulation going on (like triplet tongueing, or any "doodle-dee" type of tongue articulation on rapid notes).

That would help huh?

Workign in the V chord  of the fourth chorus- so the pattern that goes

1D 4D 4B 4D with chords in middle

OK....since most of that pattern is based around hole 4, you can either TB hole 1 to the left OR right (tongue-switching if you want) or even pucker, but the chords are based off of playing hole 4. So the chords will be 1-2-3-4 or 2-3-4 and done by taking your tongue off the harp in between the single notes on 4.

Dennis-

Trying to toungue block more 

gettign there on holes 3-6

the chorus here you scoop the 1 draw before shuffling on the 2 is helping on the 2 hole

But am struggling on the 1 hole to get the thick chordal sound- 

Do you play 123 draw chord and then slap tongue on the right side of mouth to cover holes 2-3? or different technique?

Thank you!

Chris

What time mark section are you speaking of? (so I can answer correctly)
