What Did You Miss This Week? (Week 582 #628)

We're cranking on the call and response work. Joe emphasized last night that this breathing exercise is also teaching you the blues scale and its strength on the harmonica. It's one thing to know the notes of the blues scale which often leads to just that, non-bluesy single-note playing. Harmonica blues is tied to the correct notes, yes, but it is so much more and these techniques and phrases we're playing are ingraining that for you as a player.

Class Notes

  • See you TONIGHT at the Harlem Harp Party (8pm)!
  • Register now for the next session and save $15. Use promo code GROOVYGHOSTS19.
