Lookin' Sharp

1st Chorus Breakdown

We're re-issuing one of Dennis's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Dennis:  

Hi Everyone - This week we tackle the first chorus of my George “Harmonica" Smith tribute “Lookin’ Sharp”. I will go over various George Smith stylings, such as his use of tremolo, octaves with tremolo, his bent 3 draw usage and his approach using both root notes on the 2 draw and 3 blow. Remember, if any of these techniques are new to you (such as octaves with tremolo), practice them as a separate exercise. 

So work on your tremolo and vibrato and start “Lookin’ Sharp”!

- Dennis Gruenling
