What Did You Miss This Week? (Week 575 #621)

Too many players don't know where the bluesiest stuff is on the harp - our call and response exercises point right at the bullseye of maximum blues horsepower!

Fun fact - the full bend on the 4 draw is beyond the flat fifth. It is equivalent to a slightly sharp 4 blow.

We did a slow blues accompaniment review last night based on Blue Midnight. Your best options for a tune like this are a sustained chordal effect or sustained chords that align with the chord changes.

Class Notes

  • Joe's away next week, but Grant will be covering all the group classes as usual. If you have a private lesson with Joe on Monday, that falls out this week.
  • The next Harlem Harp Party is July 30 - mark your calendars!
