We're re-issuing one of Dennis's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Dennis:
Hi Everybody! This week we break apart Chorus Five of my George “Harmonica” Smith tribute Lookin' Sharp. We're now in 3rd Position on a G harmonica which means that even though we are playing the same groove and the same key, we need to get in a different mindset for this new position. For those of you that are unfamiliar with 3rd Position, it’s always a good idea to spend some time jamming with this new position before you try to tackle this head-on in context. Remember your are now rooted around the 4 draw and 1 draw, and we will be using more of those high 5-hole draw octaves.
Have a good time with this!
