Minor 2nd > Third Verse Breakdown

Dennis Gruenling here with the last breakdown for my “Minor 2nd” study song. As we tackle this last section, we will be adding more scooped and distorted notes, more notes with vibrato, some glissando slides, and ending with some hand tremolo. Keep in mind, even though we are sticking with only Blues Scale notes for the entire song, there is so much to say and communicate, depending on how you play the notes and piece them together. Music is like a language, and once you learn not only what notes to use but HOW you can use them to express yourself in different ways, then you are really communicating through your instrument. I hope you enjoyed this piece as much as I have!

Mr. Dennis this question is out of lesson:when you get "crossover" are you set on overblows or you playing "out of box" harmonicas? Needs "crossover" custumization?

I play just about every Crossover I get straight out of the box. Sometimes I do a little extra setup myself for overbends, but usually not much.
