This week's lesson focuses on the 2nd verse of this piece we're calling Cotton Blend. It involves a lot of bending and "speechifying" - concentrated primarily on the 2nd hole, draw. I'll demonstrate and show you how to combine bends with hand techniques in order to achieve that real vocal sound with the harp. I'll demonstrate it both amplified and unamplified so you'll be able to pull it out in any situation.
You should have your harp talking in no time - Have fun!
