Matter of fact, you can play
the D-flat major arpeggio now.
That's the first time I've
asked you to play in D-flat,
but see it's not that hard.
Once you get control on these bends,
the D-flat major arpeggio,
the three notes of the D-flat
chord are D-flat, F, and A-flat.
So it's the first hole draw bent down.
[SOUND] Second hole draw
bent down all the way.
[SOUND] The third hole draw
bent down all the way.
[SOUND] And the fourth hole bent down.
[SOUND] It's not that hard.
And you just slide in one smooth breath.
You don't go.
It's just one breath and slide.
So when you start getting control of all
of these bends through
doing this exercise,
then all sorts of things on the bottom of
the harmonica start opening up to you.
And I'll get into that
just after I finish this.
