Sonnyboy's Groove

6th Verse Breakdown

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

In this lesson we'll focus even more on the hand effects that are commonly called "wah, wahs". I'll explain and demonstrate the differences in beginning and ending notes with cupped, closed hands vs beginning or ending with open hands, and doing those hand effects in conjunction with bends.

Hopefully helping you learn to "speechify" the harp so you can make it "say" what you want it to "say". This week it's not only "wah, wah" but "ow" and "wow".
