But before I leave, there's one thing
that I know that I forgot to do,
which I would like to do.
Which is to show you one
thing that I really love,
which is playing into a coffee mug.
[LAUGH] I also like drinking
what's in the coffee mug.
I'm going to pick up a G harmonica and
I'm gonna play,
just to show you the sound.
Just a little bit of
stuff in 12th position.
And you hold, you put the harmonica
over the coffee mug and
it provides a resonant chamber.
Kinda like a plunger mute trombone sound.
I'm gonna get into more of these kind of
things in another part of the website.
But I just wanted to play for you here,
a little bit on rhythm changes
in the key of C on the G card.
