[MUSIC]
So now I'm going to play for you,
All of Me, on a G harp,
in what we call twelfth
position, or first flat position.
So I told you what the chords were,
when you looked at it in a C harp.
I'll just briefly tell you again C.
[MUSIC]
E.
[MUSIC]
A.
[MUSIC]
D minor
[MUSIC]
See it fits really well on a G harmonica
that's why I'm doing it on here.
And, then E
[MUSIC],
A
minor
[MUSIC],
D
[MUSIC],
G [MUSIC]
C
[MUSIC] E [MUSIC].
You can play seventh chords for
all the major chords.
[MUSIC]
Except were not going to use over blows,
or over draws, so
I'm going to leave those out,
[MUSIC].
And D minor.
[MUSIC]
We leave out the F because it's
an over blow.
And F.
[MUSIC]
And B flat.
[MUSIC]
Just the parts of it that I can get.
And then C.
A.
D minor.
[MUSIC]
G.
[MUSIC]
C
[MUSIC]
So the five chord, which is G,
is first position.
[MUSIC]
And
you can figure out the names
of the positions for
the other chords if you want to think
like that about it, if you want to.
So now I'm just going to play it for
you on the G harp.
[MUSIC]
The introduction, so.
[MUSIC]
Octaves,
thirds.
[MUSIC]
Take whatever the harp gives.
[MUSIC]
The
little
ending.
[MUSIC]
Little swing ending.
Back then in the 1930s they all had
little endings with the button.
They used to end them short.
[SOUND] Sometimes you'd hear
the drummer grab a little cymbal.
[SOUND] Like that.
And that was the end of the tune.
So good luck with it.
[MUSIC]
