[MUSIC]
Okay, so now,
going back to the C harp.
Just to review one more time.
I've taught you how to bend.
[MUSIC]
8th hole.
[MUSIC]
From E to E flat,
the ninth hole from G to G flat.
[MUSIC]
The C from C to B flat,
with the B in the middle.
[MUSIC]
I never talked about seven, and
I told you that seven you can't
really bend because you got C and
B which there's nothing in between.
But you can bend at it.
[MUSIC]
It almost sounds like a violin.
It's got a,
[MUSIC]
if you kinda bend and unbend it.
[MUSIC]
The same way we do.
[MUSIC]
But just a little bit lighter.
[MUSIC]
It almost sounds like you're playing
a violin.
[MUSIC]
And
you can do that with the other ones too,
[MUSIC]
except they sound a little more bendy.
Seven has a special sound.
[MUSIC]
And that's the beginning of my teaching
about bend and
unbend vibrato which I'll show you later.
