Monday Minor: The Blues Harp and Modes of Expression
Intermediate to Advanced. An introduction to modal scales on the blues harp that allow for fuller expression not only in blues music, but in funk, soul, country, rock and world music. We’ll focus on two major scales and two minor scales, and we’ll touch on special tunings and chromatic harmonicas. Along the way we’ll do some listening to Little Walter, Jimmy Reed, Stevie Wonder, Carlos del Junco, Lee Oskar, Will Wilde and others.
