Hey there Harp Hounds!
This week, as we dig further into my new minor study song, get ready to add more dimension to your techniques. In Chorus 2, we need to get ready to add and experiment with lots of dips, scoops, jumps, and slightly odd timing. Nothing very difficult here, but some phrases and attacks may be not quite what you are used, so hopefully you will be adding some new stuff to your harmonica vocabulary. Anything that seems a little difficult for you should just be practiced at slower speed and then just repeat until you can pull it off at full speed…I know you all can do it! See you next week.
