This is such a fun lesson! Thank you Dennis!
Daniel - Very nice!! Sold grasp of the techniques and nice textures too. Great work on this! Happy Holidays to you!! :)
Will do. Thanks so much Dennis:)
I had some trouble finding a backing track I could play with, but this is where I am at today:) This is a very fun song to play Dennis! Thank you!
VERY nice! Great job with this here. The only thing I can comment on is, and I know this will take a little time, but work a bit more on the articulation and making it a little more staccato while you are doing the rhythmic stuff. Meaning, chop off the airflow a bit more, similar to making a "T" pronunciation...but a fine job on that. Thanks!
Such a wonderful lesson and such a helpful and enjoyable fascet of my development. Thank you Rick!
This is very hard-but equally as fun!
Rick is so awesome! I love his playing, voice, and energy!
So here is a quick sample of what I do with vibrato. I'm pretty sure it's a throat vibrato-a reverse in this sample of the machine gun sound. I don't understand how Jerry is doing the adam's apple vibrato, and wonder if that can help me develop a faster/smoother vibrato.
Can anyone offer any tips on how to develop the adams apple vibrato?
Thank you so much Jerry! I am having so much fun learning,and I have learned so much from you and Rick. This is such a great site and such a marvelous tool and method of teaching.
Some painful bends and more work on that darned ending!
I am having both difficulty and fun with the John Lee Williamson style double stops.
Rick-oops, hit the h button.
Still working on it Rich-and having such a great time! Thank you so much!
Good job Daniel! You're getting the licks down! I think now it's time to try playing it with a little more attitude - Really feel that groove!
I am having such a great time-and learning so much! You have really helped me play with more percussion and rhythm.
I'm real happy to hear that, Daniel! Percussion and rhythm = groove! Groove and tone are the 2 things that can really make one's harp playing effective. Keep up the good work!
Oops. Re-read your comment, and seems I mis-read it before. You're saying I'm still engaged in the bad habit. Well thank you for the feedback and refocusing me!
Thank you Jerry. In the past, I've been told I was lifting the harp off my mouth completely. So I've made some progress with the issue, but still need to work on it.
Jerry at the very beginning, you sound very percussive. Are you toungue slapping those first few notes?
The video doesn't match the audio:)
It seems like the warbles could be a little longer?
Ok, a little more fluidity. Wow is it helpful to watch video of myself. I can't really hear myself while I'm playing. I can a little, but I catch a lot of errors when I listen to the play back. Thank you for the pointer on shaking my head. That really seemed to help with speed and smoothness, but my neck has to get used to it;)
