Keep The Change

Fourth Verse Breakdown

Hello! For you harp players out there, this week we dive into chorus 4 of “Keep The Change”. This chorus starts with some stops on the first four bars here, and includes a quick IV chord. The subtle changes you make on your 3 draw will be very important here, and also pay attention to how I am opening and closing my hand with this piece. When you have a good grip on your microphone, the hand movements will add even more tonal textures and changes to the individual notes along the way. Because of the stops at the beginning of this chorus, I recommend you listen a few times to really get the timing down before you start trying to play along.

Dig In!!
