It's always exciting to get something new from Rick. Can't wait to hear him talking about his intentions around this new piece.
This year couldn't end better!
Hey Rick i have been working hard on this song during the last weeks and it´s bringing me further as a harp player.Is there any chance for a future lesson of "TO CLOSE TOGETHER" ???? (but please on a LOW tuned harmonica). I haven´t found any good lessons on low harmonicas out there and to me you are a living master on those harps.I can still remember when i listend the first time to rick estrin and the nightcats on a blues harp compilation and it was "TO CLOSE TOGETHER" where i totaly lost my mind. To me it felt like the coolest piece of music i´ve ever heard. Not just the Harmonica also your vocals got me totally. I couldn´t stop listening for hours to this one song.
Hi Mats - Thanks! I'm really glad you like that stuf! The main reason I haven't done any lessons on a low tuned harp, is because most people don't have low harps. Even when I did a lesson on "Getting Out of Town" I used a normal pitched G harp rather than the low C I normally use. A lot of Sonnyboy 2 type stuff is covered in my lessons on the songs, Getting Out of Town, Nine Below Zero, and Sonnyboy's Groove.
Hey everybody! I support Mat with wish for Low harps lessons. (at list in G or LF) Maybe not the whole thing , just to understand the conseption. Like in "Getting out of town" . It was great lesson ! And Rick, if you in future add James Cotton songs in lessons it would be great! ''Creeper'' is my favorite at now. What is your favorite from James Cotton? And what you recommend to lisen and study from his songs?
great song, great lesson and great style of teaching. I am looking forward for the next part.
Thanks Mats! There's a lot of good information in this series!
Thx Larry, i will give this a go, too. I´ve allready started using the metronome and trying to figure out the exact time frame while learning the song. It offers me an additional perspective in the learning process (next to tone,riffs,feeling,...) And it is allready getting fun.Thanks to all
