Alright! I’m back with the last verse of my version of Sonnyboy’s “Fattening Frogs For Snakes”. In this verse, we’ll be producing more vocal sounds on the harp - using the hands in conjunction with bending to achieve that vocal effect. I also demonstrate and explain how to produce a throat “growl”. In the right spot, a throat growl can provide a real cool, “nasty” effect. We’ll close in classic Rice Miller fashion with a sustained, half step bend on on the two draw over the V chord. I really hope you picked up on some the useful tools that I tried to give you during this series. Remember, the little things make a big difference, so get with it and get ready for prime time!
Thanks for hangin’ out with me here at Sonic Junction. I hope to see you soon.
