Theory - Root Notes (Lesson 2)

David Barrett Admin's picture

Now play a lick that starts on 2 draw... your root note of the I7 Chord. Play it a couple times until you feel comfortable with this lick. Write the lick down. Reference http://www.bluesharmonica.com/sites/bluesharmonica.com/files/private/Harmonica%20Chart%20[All%20Keys]_1.pdf and move the lick up one octave... hole for hole... note for note. Experiment with the new lick and learn how to play it as well as you did the lower octave version. You did a basic theory concept called octave substitution.
