Hello Sonic Junction friends -
Dennis Gruenling here with the next chorus of my “Trill Seeker” study song. For this next chorus, we depart from all the trills and we get melodic once again. This section will include some low bend tones, distorted notes, sharply articulated notes, and a rhythmic turnaround section to keep you on your toes. I still want you to practice working on your trills if they aren’t very clean and steady, but you can do that in short practice sessions in between these new licks.
I hope you dig this little melodic departure before we get back into some more trills next time..so keep the harp between your lips and your goals within your grips!
