Hey There Harpers! This week we get into Corus 4 of my “Third Is The Word” song, utilizing the 3rd Position Blues Scale. To start out though, you want to work on your 3-hole draw octaves, and start thinking about the notes you are playing in the middle octave in reference to your comfort zone, which is most likely 2nd Position. During this section of the song we will work on repeating a few short licks, and also on our attack and articulation on holes 6 and 7 especially.
Don't forget to have fun with this while you’re at it!
