Position Understanding (Lesson 9)

David Barrett Admin's picture

Here's how I'd change the lick that we've been looking at...

D Harmonica (2nd Position): 3' 3" 2 2" 2 = Even more bluesy now (2" is the flat-7th... a bluesy note) and keeps all the notes in a draw (good for speed)

G Harmonica (3rd Position): 5 5+ 4 4+ 4 = More bluesy and WAY easier to play... you can also play a two-hole split (octaves for some) the entire time

A Harmonica (1st Position): messes this lick up... sorry 1st Position, you're out of contention for this lick!
