Inre: JP’s Chin Ups vid
Harp teacher from Atlanta, Georgia gives a similar type of lesson. Only difference is, he breaks the whole 6 note lick down into two halves.
His first lick is: 4D 4d’ 5D repeatedly.
Since you have to release the 4 draw bend quickly and fully to get a clear 5 draw, he cautions against holding your mouth in ‘anticipation’ of what you’re doing.
It’s a little tricky at first, but you eventually get the hang of it.
His second lick is: 4d’ 4D 3D repeatedly.
It’s a good exercise because you have to come off a clear 3 draw and go right into the 4 draw bend, back up to the 4 draw clear, over to the 3 draw; and over and over again.
Oh and he ‘slides/tilts’ the harp slightly back and forth; not like “Super Jaws” JP up top there! mwuahahaha!!
I bought this guy’s dvd and little licks’ paper - Not much to either of them. Wouldn’t necessarily recommend getting them neither; unless perhaps you happen to be in the Atlanta and/or surrounding areas and want to take lessons from him. But still, the exercises are good to work on nonetheless.
Keep on smiling!
Keep on harpin’!
