Chicago Shuffle

Verse 2 Breakdown - I and IV Chord

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

I cover a lot of stuff this week - We're back focusing on the groove - I talk about tongue blocking vs lipping. I address the use of the 3rd hole blow a little and get sidetracked, ruminating on some my own personal feelings about the harp.



Note: We're trying something new in this lesson - a visual practice loop where you can see the pitch and all the detail of Rick's phrasing and bends.  Please let us know what you think.
