Sonic Junction Harpers -
I’m here now to dive into the 2nd chorus of this chromatic piece focusing on octaves. Most of the song is utilizing the blues scale, so if you have studied my previous Chromatic piece, you should be familiar with many of these patterns. Don’t forget to widen your mouth a bit to make sure you can cover 5 holes on the harp…it sounds crazy, but it’s easier than it seems at first. The main point here is to get clean, clear octaves, so practice those first and then tackle each passage if you’re not familiar with this technique yet…and don’t forget to have fun with it!!
