Hey, Sonic Junction -
We're back with the 8th and final lesson on "Mr. Lee's Mambo". For those of you who did Dennis' "Trill Seeker" series of a few months ago, the elements of this verse should be very familiar. We're basically trilling (or warbling) on the 3rd and 4th hole draw and punctuating it with little stabs on either the 5 blow, announcing the IV or on the 6 blow announcing the I. The only slightly tricky part comes on the IV, when executing the trill, we have to bend the 3 draw slightly while maintaining the straight, unbent 4 draw. It requires a small embouchure shift, adjusting the pressure just enough to make that half step bend. After that there's a marginally goofy cha, cha, cha on the V and IV before we change up on the feel again and swing it on out.
I hope you've maybe gained some fresh ideas, further developed your skills and even more importantly, had some fun with this series.
I look forward to seeing you next time.
