Sonnyboy's Groove

Third Verse Breakdown

This week we'll be doing a lot of hand effects - going for a version of the signature Rice Miller vocal-like harp sound. It's important to remember that for maximum effect, your hands need to sometimes work in conjunction with note bending and even some slight volume adjusting in order to really get that vocal-type quality.

Here again, everything is done on holes one through four.

Thanks Boyd - The groove is a huge factor in this music. Without the groove really workin' for you, it's real tough to be at all effective. Get that rhythm locked in your head!
