How Long

Introduction Breakdown

We're re-issuing one of Jerry's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Jerry:

Here's the intro for "How Long". The key is just to make good sounds: clear single notes and a nicely balanced two hole chord on holes 3&4. I tongue block holes 4 and up and switch to lip pursing from the third hole down. I play the 3&4 chord lip pursing.

Next week I'll show you some of the licks I play in accompaniment to Rick's vocal. It's a pretty tune - Have fun!
