What Did You Miss This Week? (Week 574 #620)

Chordal Effect Review

As we work on breathing through call and response, we're also sharpening our techniques. Last night Joe gave a quick review of the four main Chordal Effects:

  • head or hand shake (you'll hear this a lot from Little Walter)
  • tongue shake
  • rapid vamping
  • dirty tremolo - 4 draw with a little bit of 5 (this is a classic Big Walter sound)

Practice these over a play-along track - you should be able to play one of these inhale techniques for 4 bars.

Class Notes

  • The next Harlem Harp Party is July 30 - mark your calendars!
