Next tongue blocking tune I'd like to
play for you is the beginning
of my harmonic concerto.
It's the second movement.
I think there's a clip
of it on my own website.
And it's in the key of
B minor on an A harp.
I'll just stay on the G harp for now.
You don't have to switch harmonicas
to learn how to do this.
So this one is in a minor key.
It's in third position.
So we have the
These kind of chords.
So I've harmonized things along the third
position, and they go kinda like this.
Sounds kind of like the other stuff but
I start this one out with
the inhale from one to four
and it goes up to one to six
So you can practice
and one just stays constant.
It's one to five and the left side of my
mouth is going one, two, three, two, one,
So that part of it is,
The first part is just one,
on the left side of my mouth.
And then it slides to two,
And I move up to seven with the right
side of my mouth, start on two.
These are all blow, with the left side.
And then I play some sixths,
now sixths are intervals that
are six notes in the scale.
So if you play sixths,
it sounds like this.
And the harmonica gives us those sixths.
I'll show you.
It's, if you just play from five to eight.
It's the top of that A-minor six chord,
and you block out six and seven.
So we're playing five
and eight [SOUND] And
the middle of my tongue is over
the rail that separate six and seven.
Just like playing in
the octave from one to four.
But on the top of
the harmonica it's a sixth.
So what I'm doing is I'm playing
a draw sixth from five to eight.
And then a blow six is from six to eight.
Then a draw six again from six to nine.
Then that blow six from five to eight.
So, I'm going,
you could practice going
The same interval, but the physical
distance is different when you do that
interval with a blow or with a draw.
And that's another sixth,
five and seven blow
That's a third, just five and
six blow together
Now I'm going,
Four and five, and then spreading the left
side of my mouth out to two
Those are intervals called the tenth.
If I do them on the piano,
it looks like this.
That's what I'm seeing.
next to each
This is two blow, four and six blow, and
this is two draw bend,
two four six draw, bend,
three blow and then,
three sixths going up.
This is the beginning of the second
movement of my harmonica concerto.
The harmonica is by itself and
then, the orchestra comes in.
So, if any of you wanna learn it,
I'll the write this out and
put it up on the website and
you can read it.
I'll write and I'll probably
write it out for the G harmonica.
It makes it easier.
I guess I'm doing all these
tongue blocking on the G harp.
