Follow up question- I am really struggling getting thick sound tongue blocking the rhythm note on 1 B and 2B in the IV chord- any suggestions?
Do you play out of left side for those notes?
In these boogies, I can play the root note 3 different ways:
- tongue block- but only hitting the 1 D and 2D for the chord
- lipped, narrowing down from the 1,2,3 D chord to "center" on the 2D
- Blow chord- tongue blocked to hit the 3 B
I actually kind of like the last best in the first chorus and the second in the second chorus
Do you use all 3? How do you decide?
Are you tongue blocking on the trills ?
If not- when do you switch? TB the down riff? or only when you get to the 2 draw vamp?
Hi - good question. I am tongue-blocking on basically everything you hear me play, unless I specifically mention I am not tongue-blocking, or there is a tongue articulation going on (like triplet tongueing, or any "doodle-dee" type of tongue articulation on rapid notes).
That would help huh?
Workign in the V chord of the fourth chorus- so the pattern that goes
1D 4D 4B 4D with chords in middle
OK....since most of that pattern is based around hole 4, you can either TB hole 1 to the left OR right (tongue-switching if you want) or even pucker, but the chords are based off of playing hole 4. So the chords will be 1-2-3-4 or 2-3-4 and done by taking your tongue off the harp in between the single notes on 4.
Trying to toungue block more
gettign there on holes 3-6
the chorus here you scoop the 1 draw before shuffling on the 2 is helping on the 2 hole
But am struggling on the 1 hole to get the thick chordal sound-
Do you play 123 draw chord and then slap tongue on the right side of mouth to cover holes 2-3? or different technique?
What time mark section are you speaking of? (so I can answer correctly)
