What Did You Miss This Week (Week 464 #509)

Accompaniment Practice!!!
With last week's recording behind us, B1 was lit up with lots of new songs last night and it was a great time. Once formal performances were behind us, we spent some time on accompaniment playing. Grant and Mike sang while others took turns getting comfortable with fills and we're all learning what works and doesn't by listening to examples.

Spend some time this week listening to recordings of harp players backing others to get a feel for what they do well and we'll be sure to get more of this practice happening in class!

Class Notes
  • It's not too late to register for classes this session.
  • Joe will be out of town through Nov 7. Private lessons fall out, but group classes continue as usual with Zoe and Grant taking the helm. Note that Rhythm & Chording classes will start a half hour earlier at 2:00pm.
  • Mark your calendars for Joe's next Harlem Avenue Lounge Harmonica Party, November 29.
- Grant Kessler, B1 Blues Crew
