Boxed Up

5th Chorus Breakdown

We're re-issuing one of Dennis's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Dennis:

Hey Everybody! In this week's section of my "Boxed Up" third position instrumental, we will build up the intensity a little bit more. A lot of trills are involved, and also tongue-trills later in this chorus. Remember any new techniques should be worked on as separate exercises unto themselves before trying to make it fit in context….and you can also use a normal trill in place of a tongue-trill if you would like, or if you are more comfortable with that. This chorus includes one of my favorite descending licks towards the end of it, a nice pattern from holes 6 & 7 working down to the bottom of the harp. Dig in!!

- Dennis
