How Long

Backing Track with Rick

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

Here's the guitar backing track for "How Long." This song is taken at a very relaxed pace and besides playing what I showed you, you should really experiment with this one and find your own licks and accompaniment. Just try to hear in your head how one note or short phrase may suggest something for the next lick to come. This is improvising and playing spontaneously from moment to moment. If you're at the point where you can hear a note in your head and instinctively go to it on the harp it will be great fun and very satisfying to find alternative ways to play it.

Good Luck!
