thanks its good to review these grooves
I'm real glad you're enjoying it, Doug. It's good for me too.
YOU RE SURE USING YOUR HANDS ALOT, WHERE DID YOU PICK THAT UP? WAS IT THE SOUND YOU HEARD OR SOMEONE YOU SAW?
Honestly Doug, I can't remember how I began using my hands, but I can say that watching and paying close attention to how other people are doing it, can be real helpful. It's really the only visible aspect of playing the harp.
GET IT RICK ESTRIN ..........GET IT WHILE YOU CAN ALL NIGHT ALL RIGHT!!!!!!!! IN DA GROOOOVE
Thx it’s all about the groove 🔥🔥🛸🛸🙌
Seems to be in the beginning a lot of 1 draw 2draw 3drawnotes would that be correct? And is the whole piece Tb or is there any puckering in the piece? Great Music 🎙🙏👌🛸
I'll be trying to break down exactly what I'm doing as we get into the lessons. I'm pretty sure I'm tongue blocking the whole thing, but there may be a time or two when I lip on the 2nd hole - I honestly can't say for sure. I do know that the whole piece can absolutely be played with your tongue on the harp and that it would be very difficult to replicate most of it lipping.
IF YOUR PLAYING A 16 HOLE CHROMATIC SUPER 64 HOW DO RIFFS CHANGE OR IS IT THE SAME?
All chromatic harmonicas are tuned the same (unless it is a special-made custom tuning), so the patterns and riffs aree the same. Thanks!
GREETINGS DENNIS A FEW QUESTIONS NOTICE THAT YOU DID NOT USE THE BUTTON ON THIS SONG,,ALSO WONDERING IF A SUPER 64 PERFORMANCEIS THE RIGHT CHROMATIC HARMONICA FOR THIS SONG AND WHATS THE DIFFERANCE BETWEEN THE 64 AND THE 64X?
I did not use the button on this song, it was meant as an intrroductory Blues Chromatic piece...but still is more musically "advanced" than many other chromatic piecves you hear some other players perform.
The 64X is put together differently, and they just are introducing a new 64X model, totally redesigned. It is awwesome, but much more expensive, and more responsive. Both instruments are tuned the same and have the same notes however...
What holes are u hitting?
Hi Douglas - This video is just the song performance. When you get into the actual lessons I explain which holes I’m hitting and what to do once you get there.
where do i get the backing track?
great lesson any trick you have to tb bends ?
Well Douglas, try this: You know how when you’re lip pursing a bend, the front of your tongue drops down in your mouth? When you’re tongue blocking, you create the same sort of compression cavity in your mouth by, leaving your tongue in place on the harp, and dropping the back of your tongue. Let me know how it works out.
Greetings how much practice time do you recommend acoutic and electric?
One important thing about practice is doing it several times a day. So, for instance, if you have an hour a day to practice, it's better to do three 20 minute sessions than one 60 minute session. This will help instilling muscle memory. Always have a goal in mind when you practice. Also, there is no point in practicing with an amp. Good tone is about you and the harp. If you have a great acoustic tone then you'll have good amplified tone. It's never about the electronics.
