Fattening Frogs for Snakes

Third Solo Verse, Breakdown of First 4 Bars

Hey Sonic Junction - I’m back. This time out we’ll break down the first half of verse five. This week there’s more focus on overt percussion sounds to go along with the continuing hand and tongue blocking techniques. We’re using the percussive chords to build excitement. “Fattening Frogs” is beginning to heat up!

So this is a 2-3-4 chord in a triplet, right? I don't hear the 1 draw at all. But I could be wrong (and I usually am wrong).

Hi Marc - I’m just slapping my tongue on and off the harp and covering the bottom four holes. I can hear the 1 draw note in there, but the 2nd and 3rd holes sound a little more focused, and are coming out a little louder. Thanks - Rick
