Hoochie Coochie Man

Clapton Solo - Second Part

Hi everybody and welcome back.  We're continuing to work on the solo I did for Hoochie Coochie Man with Eric Clapton at Hyde Park.  Last week we did the very first phrase.  This week we're going to do the second part at the top of the harp.   This riff starts on the 9 hole blow and you have to come into it on the bend.  These are a great series of riffs that demonstrate how to move around the top of the harp utilizing blow bends.  Take your time to build proper muscle memory on these bends.  Next week we will move to the low end of the harp.

See you next week.
