Hello Harpers of Sonic Junction -
This week we start to take apart this new study piece and remember to pay attention to the subtle differences over the I-IV-V chord changes. Some of your practice for this piece will have to be practice alone with your harp and a tuner, to be sure that your bending ability is in check and in tune. Also, I am adding some vibrato and tremolo to many of these notes for texture, so stay on top of your other techniques as well.
Dig in and have fun!
