Off the Wall

Fourth Chorus Breakdown

This week we're on to the fourth chorus of "Off the Wall". This begins with a riff that repeats four times with slight variations. The tongue blocking on this riff should make this riff "bounce" with a nice rhythmic feeling.  After that it's just a warble and a turnaround.

C harp in key of G.

Have fun.
