What Did You Miss This Week? (Week 594, #640)

2020 in B1 kicked off with a dynamics tweak to call and response as well as a new commitment from Joe to address the "Foundation" harp players need.

You'll notice dynamics in Joe's playing as he dishes up call and response phrases to you. Play back to mimic his notes, phrasing, timing and now also volume. (Hint: you shouldn't be blowing hard anyway and this will just get you that much closer to the 9 second inhale target!)

And as you build upward in your playing, adding things, it's important to keep fundamentals in mind to have a firm base that holds it all up. This foundation work is something Joe's going to be working with us on this year. More soon!
