Exercises for (relative) beginners

Hello @Slim, :+1: for your work. That turned out really well. I think the idea of playing with a Bb harp is very good.
I like playing with a bb. It sounds good to me, but is often ignored.
Astrid te desea un buen momento :woman_in_lotus_position::wink:

Sweet sounding stuff @Slim. These are great riffs for everyone to learn, memorize, and work into your next solo!

I was gonna say β€œit’d be great to have the jump-to timestamps for each riff” and then I saw you’d already put that in the description!

Riff #1 is at 44 sec
Riff #2 is at 1 min 25 sec
Riff #3 is at 2 min 1 sec
Riff #4 is at 2 min 53 sec

I’m gonna make another post about this so people can find it more easily. :+1:t3: Great work! :raised_hands:t3: Thanks for sharing. :sunglasses:

PineComb any chance you could post a gp tab? Would love to see an example. Love the new sync audio clip capability.
Thanks

Hello, fellow harpisti !

I have published another video in the series β€œBlues Harp Exercises” – this one being a bit more advanced in terms of the bends used and some of the rhythmic elements. It gives you five riffs that again all have a β€œblues feeling” to them. :musical_note:

Here is the link to this video.

@PineComb any chance posting a GP tab example?
Thanks

@PineComb I finally found your example, but not till after I gave up and set out on my own GP quest. Glad I did cause it easily allows me to duplicate harmonica tabs quicker and can play the harmonica sounding part along with other instruments without dealing with text or lyric entry and sync.
