Nicer touch with your breath control here, very good. Sounds much more in control and nuanced! Good work.

I would suggest next thing to work on would be more subtle control of bending. Some of the bends ar e great, while others are hit too hard and tend to go flat sometimes (this whenever harmonica players bend too hard). Overall GREAT JOB!!

If Dennis will allow me to comment ....

Sounds GREAT to me!

Dennis knows how I play and he will understand that, even though I'm not a "traditional style" player, I'm a little jealous of how good you sound at this style.

Mr. Dennis this question is out of lesson:when you get "crossover" are you set on overblows or you playing "out of box" harmonicas? Needs "crossover" custumization? 

Dennis Gruenling
Dennis Gruenling Jan 27, 2020

I play just about every Crossover I get straight out of the box. Sometimes I do a little extra setup myself for overbends, but usually not much.

 Mr. Dennis thank you very much... 😀😀😀 Few months ago I thought that play softer is less emotional... Now trying to do it, but when I'm switching my video recorder something starts... Maybe I'm nervous... 😀😀😀

again Gagi - GREAT work with this! Just saw your work on Lookin' Sharp and this is another great one!

Same feedback, you are doing very good with the phrasing, notes and techniques...the BEST thing you can do now for your playing and for your tone and overall sound is to play softer. Less breath and less volume. It will help the notes ring out better, the octraves be more in tune, and also help your harps last longer. Very good work!!

Gagi - GREAT job with this, really nice!!

For further feedback, here is what I would say (and I know you can do all of this and do it well)....most importantly is to play softer. Greta notes, great technique, most of the timing is VERY good, but playing softer will make the octaves more in tune, and help your harmonicas last longer (and stay in tune longer also). Also, when you go in the 3rd chorus with all of the notes on 3 draw half step bend, it sounds great, but build up the intensity more - meaning start with less intensity (less vibrato and hand tremolo) and then watch as I add more at the very end to build it up. If you start with so much texture and intensity, there no where to go with it.

All in all - GREAT work with this and can't wait to see some more form you!

Mr. Dennis which is more dificult to play the blues: diatonic or chromatic? 

Dennis Gruenling
Dennis Gruenling May 14, 2019

I would say blues chromatic is more difficult. They are very different however, but I think for most players, unless you already are familiar with the chromatic, the chromatic is more difficult.

😂‼️ Hi Gagi - I didn’t start doing that until I had already been playing about 20 yrs. I think everyone should get a good command on the harp WITH their hands first, before they start messing around with tricks.
