Keep The Change

Fifth Chorus Breakdown

Hey Harp Players!

For this week, we start working on more scoops and tongue articulations for this fifth chorus of “Keep The Change” The scoops on hole 3 draw in particular are important here. As with the rest of the song, keep paying attention to the changes on holes 2 and 3 draw on your A harp, and make exercises out of some of the riffs where we are bending between a couple notes on these holes. See you next week for more!

This does indeed seem to be the next step for me.  I think I'm getting there. Thanks.

It is simple to start implementing these little things, and the more you practice them along with playing the changes, the more it will stick with you...and you just build onto that!
