Below is the mp3 recording of the exercise:
Here is a challenge for you – Grab a G diatonic harmonica and play along with this recording. The metronome is set at 50 beats per minute. You can download your own PDF and MP3 of this exercise at the HotRodHarmonicas.com store for free. Enjoy!
I’ve been a big fan of using harmonica train rhythms to develop your lungs, tone, timing and increasing volume without force. You can trance out exploring endless variations of hand tone, throat and mouth tone variations, and mess with timing and swing while you are at it… This particular variation develops the ability to instantly double your speed while maintaining the same accent.
This is one of many ways of working with train rhythms. I’ll be posting more on this over the next couple of months.
