So, now that I've shown you all
the exercises playing the scales and
all the keys,
and two, five, ones, in all the keys, and
you know how to over blow, of course,
to prepare you to do that.
I've played a bunch of tunes
in a bunch of keys, but
I haven't played anything yet in the four
last keys along the circle of fifths.
Let's say the third, fourth,
fifth, and sixth flat positions.
E flat, A flat, D flat and G flat, or
you might say C sharp,
and F sharp if you want.
So we're gonna do Green Dolphin Street,
On Green Dolphin Street,
which is by Bronislau Kaper.
It's a total absolute jazz standard.
It's a wonderful tune.
It has great chord changes.
It goes from major to
minor in the same key.
It slides around with these triads
over the pedal point of E flat.
F and E over E flat.
And then it goes up a minor
third into the key of G flat.
And I'm going to play it for
you in E flat on a C harmonica.
Normally, I wouldn't do that,
but for the sake of this website,
I thought I'd give you
a tune to play in E flat.
It's a famous jazz tune and
it is playable in this key.
So, here we go.
One, two, three.
