Fattening Frogs for Snakes

Second Solo Verse Breakdown

Hey Sonic Junction -

This week we’ve got another “Fattening Frogs” harp solo verse. It’s got some important advice on soloing psychology as well as a lot of Sonnyboy-esque licks that should afford you plenty of opportunity for applying the techniques we’ve been working on. Remember, when you can really internalize these techniques, your Harp playing enjoyment will increase exponentially. Guaranteed!
