Ok Sonic Junction - This week we arrive at the moment we’ve all been waiting for - Let the slop begin! We’ll be hitting the 5 draw and adding a little 6 draw for that dirtier, bluesier effect, and doing the same thing on the bent 3 draw, by adding in a touch of the 4 draw. It’s important to remember to keep your embouchure strong when playing these licks - Maintain your oral focus! We want strong and sloppy (think James Cotton) - We don’t want this thing limp, weak and sloppy (ie: Bob Dylan). Remember, we’re using the slop to add to the impact of these licks - to enhance the power of what we’re trying to say!
Have fun and I’ll see you next week.
