Boxed Up

6th Chorus Breakdown

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

Hi Everyone - For this week's section of my "Boxed Up" third position instrumental, we tackle the 6th chorus. This chorus has some nice drawn out bends, and some licks covering more than half the harmonica. There will be some sharp articulations in this chorus, so be sure to work on your articulation for this section. Also involved will be various bending scoops & dips which will make some of these licks flow smoothly. These little nuances make a huge difference in the overall fluidity of these licks.

Have at it & enjoy!!
