We're re-issuing one of Dennis's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Dennis:
Hi there harp junckies! This time around, we tackle chorus 7 of my blues scale piece “Scaled Down” and we go back to working our way up the blues scale from root note 2 draw up to the next root note. We will also be using more vamped single notes and some trills in this chorus. This time around, we will need to make sure we are comfortable with the groove and tempo of the song since we will be intensifying the pulse of the song with our phrasing here. I also speak about using your hands for varying degrees of projection. Don’t forget to have fun with this and I’ll see you next week!
