Crawlin' Kingsnake

Outro Breakdown

Hey Sonic Junction -

Rick Estrin here, back with the final installment of this "Crawlin Kingsnake" series. In this lesson I talk a little more about, and demonstrate the effective use of tension and release - repetition and surprise. There's also some very pronounced wah wah handwork, some gradual bending, and at the very end, a shift in groove and feel that effectively announces the conclusion of the song. Most of all, I hope I was able to make this foundational "Kingsnake" series enjoyable for you. As I've already mentioned, this series contains several important building blocks that, if internalized, will continue to serve you for as long as you're playing blues harmonica.

Until next time,

Rick Estrin

Thanks for this series Rick.  It's really given me some new tools for keeping the groove, especially playing solo.  I'll be working on many parts of this going forward. And enjoying every minute.
