[MUSIC]
So just like when you play in first
position, on a G harp to
play the blues up high.
If I could find a G harp,
my kingdom for a G harp.
Here's a G harp.
If you play in E minor in fourth position
[MUSIC]
because on the G harp,
you go down three notes, G, F sharp, E.
It's fourth position.
[MUSIC]
So
that's
pretty
cool.
Then on the bottom of the harmonica.
[MUSIC]
That's
the minor
pentatonic scale.
I'm using a G harp still.
[MUSIC]
It's one, flat three, four,
five, flat, seven.
Starting on the third hole drawn
bend,fourth hole blow, fourth hole draw,
fifth hole blow, sixth hole blow,
sixth hole draw.
[MUSIC]
And
the four chord.
[MUSIC]
Is the third position.
[MUSIC]
And the five chord
is the fifth position,
which is the next one
we're gonna do.
So it's really interesting when you
get into these keys playing blues
on the harmonica.
That the different cords that you're
playing in the course of playing one,
four, and five, you can start thinking
of them as the other positions.
And this also it easier
to play in these keys.
[MUSIC]
