About This Class

Super popular blues and guitar music, many people were inspired to play harmonica because of this piece - learn it now!

Cowboy Bebop anime soundtrack with guitar from passionate Japanese harp man Ryuichiro 'Weeping Harp' Senoh.

He is no longer with us but his widow Kikue Senoh has kindly given me permission to make a public course and use his music from the Youtube movie recordings.

Her site for him is here sites dot google dot com slash view slash skikue slash

Many people listened to the performances of Ryuichiro Senoh (Weeping Harp Senoh) who died in 2017.

Ryuichiro and (I think)Nubuo Yagi played harp for the band "The Seatbelts", a group put together for the

Cowboy Bebop series of anime (Japanese animation).

Transcripts

1. SD1 Promo: Theo thing. This cowboy bebop enemy soundtrack by the seatbelts was pulled. Spoken, okay, and you can hear it in the background. It's a piece of music that has got a lot of people into playing harmonica. And I know this because you've told me so we're gonna take it apart. And it is an interesting piece. It says It features Weeping harp Seno re Suri Weeping Heart Center Japanese guy who's suddenly no longer with us. Passed away a couple years back three years ago, but his widow has been talking with me about it. Andi, she's given me permission to use it on the YouTube movies, so I've broken it down. It is my scroll here into, um 21. Yeah, 21 sections on. Uh, you're gonna get a much nicer version of this. This is just my scratchings. You'll get a properly printed out version with nice harmonica tablature. I'm not going to give you the notation for it. Just the tablature on the soundtrack. You're here, the original at different speeds. I've changed the key of it to make it easier to play on the sea. Harmonica on. Do you hear me playing all of it in sections, not all at once, but all of it in sections. And we'll go through it all and there's there's lots of interesting stuff in here is gonna be a really good course. I think if you like learning this kind of it's really Chicago Blues, but with Japanese twist to it. So it's quite interesting. I think you're going to enjoy it quite challenging. It's not that difficult, technically, individually, when you break it down, which is what we do. But if you put it all together, that's quite a challenge to, you know, to make it work as a piece of music. Quite a challenge because the first part of it is unaccompanied, so there's and there's no real rhythm to it. You can hear is foot tapping, so there's a bit of a rhythm. But it's not a structure that you'd recognize so that you're gonna enjoy it, so you'll need to be able to bend notes a little bit. He's using four draw a lot, then you're finalist. Boudreau has been used to bits how one little bit there's a little bit tongue blocking, not essential to use that, but that's what he does Come on in. Have a look at it. I think you're gonna enjoy it. It's gonna be good challenge for you. Okay? See inside. 2. Introduction - let me tell you something: Hi there. Thanks for coming, Teoh. Have a look at this course. Now. This is, of course, about learning how to play. Spoke Idoki by whipping Harp Seno, the great Japanese blues harmonica player. And it was done for a band called seatbelts who were recording the soundtrack for the Japanese enemy Cowboy Bebop. A lot of people have got into playing the harmonica because of this particular track, and I've had a lot of pressure over the years to record this for you. Record a lecture or a court. Full course on it on its Taken much longer than I thought. I've broken it down into 21 sections. The first I'd say the first half, I'm going to go into great detail. And then the second half, I'm going to do it a bit more quickly because you will have if you've got it. If you stayed with the course up till then, you'll be able to manage the rest of it fairly quickly. I didn't want the course to go on for 26 hours. This is going to be about an hour and 1/2. I think so. If you thought about it like two minutes a day over a month that's gonna work out, You be all right. You won't have to spend ages on it, so it's gonna be fairly simple. And there the simple thing is on breaking everything down into small sections so you can see from the chart here. This is what you'll get. It's broken down into 21 sections. I may add some more to that later, but the moment that's how it's looking. And each one is fairly short, and it should be crystal clear with the tablature. So I'm giving you the numbers. Andi, no arrows and give me the numbers and plus or minus tells me if it's breathing in or out and the other marks on there, you'll see this crescendos as head rolls, all the different stuff that you need to learn with this piece of music. So come and join us on the spoken okey journey on. We'll follow Weeping Heart Seno on his progress through the whole piece. I think you'll enjoy it right up to the last to draw these beautiful vibrato the man has. You're going to really enjoy this. I think so. Come on in. Take a look. R C inside and let's get cracking. First thing we'll do is we'll walk through the whole four minute track and then we'll look a different speeds. Okay, see inside. Bye for now. 3. Walk through: I think the first thing we ought to do is to listen to the whole song at full speed. So then we know what we're dealing with. So I'm using transcribe as I often do, as you can see from the screen. And I've marked into 22 different sections, individual sections. There are some main macro sections, if you like. Um, the the intro part on this has a little bit of rhythm because it's got his foot tapping. So this goes all the way up to Section nine. That's what I'm called the in True. All right, then we've got what I would call a verse part, which is sections 10 through to 14. And then we've got what I'm calling the dream sequence, which is just different sounds coming in tinkly, dreamy sounds. And that's 15 through to 18. And then we've got the verse again, kicks in at the end and finishes it off. So there's this sort of the main pass Onda, and let's have a listen to it and let's watch it as well, because you gain a lot, in fact, from looking at the wave form of the audio. So I mean, yeah, you could see where the gaps are. You could see where the rhythm is. It isn't carefully. You're here. Is foot tapping as well? Weeping hop Centeno's foot tapping? - Yeah , okay, - way , way, Theo. Way, Theo. Okay, so that's all there is to it. And you want to learn all of this in one course? Okay, well, good luck. Good luck with that one. There's a lot of stuff in here, isn't there? Let's just look at some of the some of the detail. There's not that many holes that get used. So there's this. Quotable. There's quite a lot of the harmonica was not used. Um, you don't think it goes above whole six as I can remember. So we got spending, so you, if you want to copy them exactly, you will need to learn to do this spending. So you've got four drawer. Quite a lot. Three drawer, all of that. All of the bends on three drawer would be handy to have to draw as well. Um, and then you got lots of wow are lots of tone blocking, lots of puckering, lots of tongue splits, not servant. What I call fake tongue blocks Onda and some glue Sandoz and run off some scoops, some scoops up to it. Trills, head shakes, wobbles, ideological trauma lows deeper. Are told. It is quite a lot of stuff in here, and there's lots of repeated phrases like, for example, this. So that's a phrase he come up to come up with many times over. Oh, so we come across many repeating sections, and then there's lots of wildly different parts to it. Very interesting piece, Andi. I've been talking to whipping harp centers. We don't recently, Andi just gaining permission to use all this stuff, and she says, Go for it. So that's a little good, right? That's it. For now, that's the first part of just the overview. All right, so we'll start to break it down in the next lecture. See you name it 4. Section 1 no bending: Hi there. Let's take a look at section one, shall we? So I'll explain the tablet. Sure. As we go along, I minus means breathing. These little tilde marks is a sort of sound variations that could be vibrato Or it could be a little wobble. The apostrophe here means a bend 1/2 step end. Let me turn Bend. The more of those you see, the more Ben Sarah, the deeper the vendor is. This is a fake tongue. Block will come to that in a minute. This is a roll off. Say is just just just falling off the back of two drawer and continue to drop down. Um, comparable, that is, Let's see in a minute I might have to adjust. This is a work in progress, isn't it? Uh, that would be accord there where I've put them in brackets or play that same time. That's a blow cord. All right, let's how I look at it. So here's the first mate Duccio 32 on. Then that bit to, uh, bend the two down Seeger 32 She brought her there, then with the to bend it down and then drop it off to one drawer. That's the first part. This little section here, that's that bit. What's that bit right there? Do you know? So I guess the best thing to be introduced to pause this Andi practice Step it right now and then maybe come back to the beginning again and just refresh. Keep posing, I think will be the way to go. Otherwise I'm gonna end up causing the whole time and spending 25 hours on this, which is no really want to be doing. Okay, so that's the first part. Now I've amusing transcribe The original song is played on a D harmonica, but we transcribe you can change the pitch so I have minus two in here. Takes it down to see how you can change the speed along here, which we will do a lot when it gets tricky. Will change the speed. Onda Um, you can get transcribe exclamation mark from seventh string dot com. I think it's a free trial for a month and then it's probably something like 30 bucks for life. Well worth in my humble opinion. Okay, It's this again, E Maybe you want to practice it with me. Thio Thio Again. What have you change speed? You can really hear differences coming in, can you? So okay, this this. Go on, do this next section. I think it's a normal speed thing is the fake tongue block. You can see the beginning right here. There's a very big impact. I think when he's doing, probably is covering homes 12 and three and then saying the word you zoo something like that holds 12 and three compressing to hold to Well, this is bringing in. So you actually hear whole one in that little bit. So that's how I think he's saying it. He might be using a ton block thing, how to tell. He does talk about a lot, so I don't know the answer to that, but we weren't trying. Create the sound of the two different ways. Doing it way Theo with that will tail off the end. Wrong bonobo. And you can also see the difference between the 1st 2nd or third nose. You can see that the middle, when it's quieter, is 1/4 well, has less impact on the way for Maybe it's just got less sound on it. Not necessarily quiet, less information. Okay, and then we've got this next no phrase. Where does it go to? Probably that I think this is repeating phrase. Um, that already like this from here. Just put that same thing as as before the fake time block. Yeah. Okay. So practice that draw, draw, draw, blow. And it's That's the fake tone block held to draw 123 in 22 draw on, then. 123 Blow. Haven't Haven't go a term doing that. Well, I just I just This is we go along one of these things consider work in progress. The more I look at them, the more I change them. So I suppose it will never be finished with it. Look, you don't do Let's just see where that goes. Theo, that's the end of section one. Okay, I'm gonna stop there, and you can go back in practice. All of that, um, the the original track if you want. Just take it off. YouTube turns into an MP three. Chuck it in to transcribe. That might be the way to go. That's what I did with permission. Okay. See it in the next lecture practice that one 5. Section 2 bending hole 4 and headrolls: Okay, Welcome back. And now let's take a look at Section two. Don't worry if they if you feel it's quite a lot of information here, you just need to take time on it. Listen, that's put it down to 50% of speed. Listen again. He's playing fairly. I would say fairly random, you can hear is his foot tapping in the background. He's not really locking onto the rhythm, and this does later. But Don gets really quite got into it yet, So it's really random. Andi. Interesting phrasing. I've talked it all out for you, as you can see blow here, but it doesn't have much in the way structure, so let's just quickly look at the tab. Showy. Here's the time. So I've got a three, three and four drawer Hendro warble head roll, two whole shape. Whatever you wanna call it, then four drawer for draw Bent for drawer five Drawer five. Draw again. Five. Blow for drawing. Warble on it. Slight change fluctuations. Sound blow for drawer for draw. 34 Waffle blow for drawer. Forward bend. Draw for draw for the bend. Blow for draw three. Draw for and then this is Drew Chris Sando played all fast together do. That's the very end of that part. So you just breathe in on whole five and slide right down to hold to do you. So let's have it. Look at it at how speed and I'll run it past the time as well. There we go. It's a simple is that so? The four drawer 34 draw wobble. Just let's just quickly sounds crazy at half speed, so it's just moving between three drawn four. Jewel thief Try. Make it really clear, so you don't go into hell to whole five you don't want. That's a different thing. You don't want that right now. You want three draw and four drawer together so you can either move your head. Theo combination, both. Thes. Probably what most people do. You think I could use the tongue, but it's no. I don't think that's what he's doing. Oh, so I think you have to just work through these phrases yourself when you, Oh, have another listen to it. There will keep this slow speed 50%. You might be thinking, Oh my God, this is way too much. I've bitten off more than I can chew here. Um, I was really thinking the same thing when I started this, because it's 22 sections of this is quite a lot of work. It's only four minutes time, but it's it's fairly packed. It gets easier later because when they get our kicks in, then it becomes a much simpler thing to play. So shall I just leave it with you? I'll give you the track at different speeds, and then you can play along with it. I just need to show you how it works and give you the confidence to tackle it. And then I think the donkey work must be done by you. Otherwise, we will spend 25 hours on this one song, and that can't be done. So good luck with that. I'll give you the backing track. As I said at different speeds, Or, better still, put the track into transcribe Andi. You can change the speed yourself. If you want to get a copy of this transcribed father that I've got here, then you can email me Ben that Ben Hewlett. No, from best when he's been Hewlett at me dot com. Ben Hewlett at me dot com and I can send it to you. But it's better if you do it yourself. Really. You learn more if you do it yourself. All right, practice that and then we'll go on a section three in a wee bit. Okay, Bye for now. 6. Section 3 split 4 and headrolls: Okay, let's have a look at Section three and I'm going to give you a new idea. Now we've got some foot tapping going on the background. You can more clearly here a sense of rhythm. I'm gonna sing this. What they dio we're going to get some sense of it by singing it. I always think it's if you've taken my courses before. You'll know that I'm a great believer in singing the harmonica parts to try and get it into your head. Get it on the hard drive that stood at 70% speed and sing it again. Look at it. You begin to see that part there. That's the trill donated it dio Theo. Funny little part there, isn't it? Do so now. Look at the tab. We've got this first part is a six and three tongue Look, it's a split. It's a split for Uh huh. Just before that, you hear a little bit of sound? Did? Uh huh. So that's again like a fate on block or thing. No, no, no. So I think what he's doing there is he's playing 345 and six initially and then putting the tongue onto four or five to block it on. The remaining notes are three and six. You might want to pause here and just practice getting a split for playing whole three whole six Only if you come to that at this point, just Playhouse six you'll get away with. So listen to the track. You here that there's bit of sound first, which is holds 3456 I think. And then I think he blocks out the middle to leaving just the six and three chord. While the two notes agree with that, you can hear his foot in the background. Dude, don't Don't, don't. So you begin to get some sense of rhythm now three down. So if you look at the time now, you'll see here five drawer five, troll five blow for drawer. You can do it. Time block to a pocket that's up to you. 554434 And then that it'll let's listen to that that partially I've yet to hear some other , no further Oh, but, uh, uh uh, that last note is the three drawer. That little block there. It's the three draw here. Uh, no. And then we go into this head roll. And that is just a drop off that oblique. Listen to that. Just the last part. Oh, I can hear the foot, honey. Oh, please. Let's try the whole lot. Show it at, um, 50% speed. Are you ready? Let's go on and go now. One other thing you can do on the platform you're watching on there should be a cog where you can slow down the speed, the playback speed. So if you wanted to slow this down even more right now without having to muck about with transcribe, you could just slow down right now on your platform. Okay, Cool. So I'm gonna leave that with you to practice. Andi, I will pick it up with you in the next section. Section four. Okay. Enjoy. See you later. 7. Section 4 using hole 6: So he is a great example off as you how you break things down, you can make them very, very simple. So this is now section five. So listen, got a bit of rhythm going on And you can sing this when properly I found a doctor. Don't Don't the slow down a minute. 50 50%. Oh, I want you to sing this. Please put your home on it. Get down and sing it. Don't, don't Don't the dum dum. See how this helps you visually Don't don't dio, though. Don't do you don't do that. Now we look at the tab. He comes in with a little bit of a court draw cord on something like three and four, which is possibly a mistake in excitement. I don't know. He's heading for six draw, so it could be that it's like a scoop up to that six. True in your weight. There it is. Let's listen again. Yeah. So it's something that has a bit of a scoop up, and it's leading to six troll. Oh, and then the other notes. Ah, let's forget that scoop for the minute and just keep it clean. 6 12 six. Draw on a big jump down to sit forward roar. I just check by doing a split for I checked that one and forests the octaves that I know where I am. This harmonica doesn't have any numbers on it. I'm not. Anyway, I don't really think about numbers myself when I'm playing. I'm just trying to think about numbers for you. So I'm 10 years hope for drawer, and I put this little squiggle next to it because it's a little bit of a head. Rome or it might have been a mistake. It doesn't really matter and then blow drop down to three, draw back to four blow for draw. So let's take a run at it all the way through. You look at the top if you want. Oh, uh, might wanna pause here on. Repeat that about yourself a few times, and then let's play it with the track. Now act 50% speed. Here we go. No, And then what I would recommend is that you challenge yourself once you've got that sorted and you'll go for the 70%. Let's try that. It is too much for you at the minute, don't worry, but let's just try it. And then you might go for the 100th in speed. It really depends. How much do you want to go in depth with this stuff? Okay, that's it for now. Let's the intersection four list. Crack on with section five in the next lecture. See in a minute by, you know. 8. Section 5 headrolls and drop off: Hi there. Welcome back. Hope you're getting on okay with this and you don't feel have taken on too much. Just learn from it. What you want, Really? There's a long way to go, but I think we're doing okay. So now we'll take a look at Section five. Let's just look at the tap first. So we've got a three and four hand roll. Begin with this part Here you look at the time and then for blow four drawer bent four draw straight and again straight again and then a head roll again on a long hole for four blow. Let me just add Come with those to make it look as if it's longer. And then he's just ripping around this whole four. Really, Uh, I put five in brackets because there's a touch of five in that you hear how it if you play whole four drawer and then you add a touch of all five and it kind of makes it what they call dirty. There's no a full four and five 100% on its for with just a touch of all five. And then you've got this Chris and often the end drawer Chris Sando from whole full and you just slide away from me. Whole four has played throughout the whole off this section, so really, you're just riffing around on whole four. Let's have a listen to it now. Surely it's his full spade sing along. So technically, it's not very difficult. It's just playing it like he does is difficult because there's no riel form to it in a real structure to it. It's just he's making up is he goes along improvising. We call that don't weigh. So if you want to copy him exactly, there's a lot of work to do if you want to just get the sense of it than just riff around on four drawer with a bit of bending and bit of head rolls has tried it 50% speed and try and copy him for the sake of it. They seem so found this, which he likes, and he comes back to it in the next section as you'll see. So will I leave that with you? Not technically difficult, but if you want to copy exactly like Weeping Harp, Seno plays it, then you'll want to spend quite a bit of time getting it spot on or just learn from it. What you like the bits that you like. All right. See you next. Lecture by for now. 9. Section 6 draw and blows on 4: Hi there. Welcome back. So this is a slightly longer section, but it has multiple parts that are repetitive. So the first part is this kind of duty. Lulu again, he's really reffing the whole thing on hold four in the next two sections, do you know it's like he's on hold for one. He's going dude Lulu as he prison do you do? Lulu on. This happens quite a lot in this section, and it's sort of fallout from the previous section. Seems to like that. First bit is he's just got a cord. I think it's a bloke or 23 then you scoop up into this whole four and it is a single notes was recorded. It's basically single notes with whole, for I can hear a touch of whole three and I think no touchable five on that four draw. Just a touch of it. Not even worth writing in there, Onda. Then you get this big draw cord blow cord or draw note blow court thing. I wish repeats four times. So there he is playing. So I've got that in its four drawer and then a blow on 23 Yeah, that's right, Theo, Whether his tongue blocking it or not remains to be seen. You can choose whichever way you want to do this. It's four drawl and then 23 blow Theo practices. Pause here if you wish, because you're breathing out and then you can do this forevermore if you want to. There's no restriction on your lungs, and then you've got a bit a bit more do blue going on. Then he gets onto the sort of four drawer. Um, Do you like that, huh? Don't do that duty. Oh, it's just bent really spent, really spent released on. Then he gets into the blow part of it, which is further here. And then he ends on the longer blow. Oh, with a bit of a barato, probably hand vibrato, thes Goodman hands the sky, so let's run the whole thing. Show it slowly again. It's not technically difficult, is it has only got one tiny bend on hold for which is that second bend the beginners learn . So is not technically difficult. Is just how much time do you want put into it to be exactly like him? I don't know. Just looking at 50% speed, do straight. Did you want to play along with it? Let's try it. - And that continues into section seven. Um, so why don't you just work on that itself? And you can just repeat that as much as you like on use the track in its entirety. If you want to go from the very beginning up to this point, maybe that would be a smart move on each time you do it, you could go from the beginning up to the end of section six up to the end of section seven for the beginning up to and eventually you will be able to play the entire thing in its entirety. Right? That's it. For the moment. This next in section seven. We continue directly on this blow part. Just continues from where it when we're living off here. It just continues on. So we couldn't stop with a nice bit. We've got blow for than draw three bent. So that's pretty cool, right? That's come back to that in a minute. On dsi. See you later. Bye. For now 10. Section 7 getting rid of excess air: So he is a great example off as you how you break things down, you can make them very, very simple. So this is now section five. So listen, got a bit of rhythm going on And you can sing this when properly I found a doctor. Don't Don't the slow down a minute. 50 50%. Oh, I want you to sing this. Please put your home on it. Get down and sing it. Don't, don't Don't the dum dum. See how this helps you visually Don't don't dio, though. Don't do you don't do that. Now we look at the tab. He comes in with a little bit of a court draw cord on something like three and four, which is possibly a mistake in excitement. I don't know. He's heading for six draw, so it could be that it's like a scoop up to that six. True in your weight. There it is. Let's listen again. Yeah. So it's something that has a bit of a scoop up, and it's leading to six troll. Oh, and then the other notes. Ah, let's forget that scoop for the minute and just keep it clean. 6 12 six. Draw on a big jump down to sit forward roar. I just check by doing a split for I checked that one and forests the octaves that I know where I am. This harmonica doesn't have any numbers on it. I'm not. Anyway, I don't really think about numbers myself when I'm playing. I'm just trying to think about numbers for you. So I'm 10 years hope for drawer, and I put this little squiggle next to it because it's a little bit of a head. Rome or it might have been a mistake. It doesn't really matter and then blow drop down to three, draw back to four blow for draw. So let's take a run at it all the way through. You look at the top if you want. Oh, uh, might wanna pause here on. Repeat that about yourself a few times, and then let's play it with the track. Now act 50% speed. Here we go. No, And then what I would recommend is that you challenge yourself once you've got that sorted and you'll go for the 70%. Let's try that. It is too much for you at the minute, don't worry, but let's just try it. And then you might go for the 100th in speed. It really depends. How much do you want to go in depth with this stuff? Okay, that's it for now. Let's the intersection four list. Crack on with section five in the next lecture. See in a minute by, you know. 11. Section 8 employing a 4 to 6 jump: Hi there. Welcome back. Hope you're getting on okay with this and you don't feel have taken on too much. Just learn from it. What you want, Really? There's a long way to go, but I think we're doing okay. So now we'll take a look at Section five. Let's just look at the tap first. So we've got a three and four hand roll. Begin with this part Here you look at the time and then for blow four drawer bent four draw straight and again straight again and then a head roll again on a long hole for four blow. Let me just add Come with those to make it look as if it's longer. And then he's just ripping around this whole four. Really, Uh, I put five in brackets because there's a touch of five in that you hear how it if you play whole four drawer and then you add a touch of all five and it kind of makes it what they call dirty. There's no a full four and five 100% on its for with just a touch of all five. And then you've got this Chris and often the end drawer Chris Sando from whole full and you just slide away from me. Whole four has played throughout the whole off this section, so really, you're just riffing around on whole four. Let's have a listen to it now. Surely it's his full spade sing along. So technically, it's not very difficult. It's just playing it like he does is difficult because there's no riel form to it in a real structure to it. It's just he's making up is he goes along improvising. We call that don't weigh. So if you want to copy him exactly, there's a lot of work to do if you want to just get the sense of it than just riff around on four drawer with a bit of bending and bit of head rolls has tried it 50% speed and try and copy him for the sake of it. They seem so found this, which he likes, and he comes back to it in the next section as you'll see. So will I leave that with you? Not technically difficult, but if you want to copy exactly like Weeping Harp, Seno plays it, then you'll want to spend quite a bit of time getting it spot on or just learn from it. What you like the bits that you like. All right. See you next. Lecture by for now. 12. Section 9 split 4 on 2 and 5 blow: Hi there. Welcome back. So this is a slightly longer section, but it has multiple parts that are repetitive. So the first part is this kind of duty. Lulu again, he's really reffing the whole thing on hold four in the next two sections, do you know it's like he's on hold for one. He's going dude Lulu as he prison do you do? Lulu on. This happens quite a lot in this section, and it's sort of fallout from the previous section. Seems to like that. First bit is he's just got a cord. I think it's a bloke or 23 then you scoop up into this whole four and it is a single notes was recorded. It's basically single notes with whole, for I can hear a touch of whole three and I think no touchable five on that four draw. Just a touch of it. Not even worth writing in there, Onda. Then you get this big draw cord blow cord or draw note blow court thing. I wish repeats four times. So there he is playing. So I've got that in its four drawer and then a blow on 23 Yeah, that's right, Theo, Whether his tongue blocking it or not remains to be seen. You can choose whichever way you want to do this. It's four drawl and then 23 blow Theo practices. Pause here if you wish, because you're breathing out and then you can do this forevermore if you want to. There's no restriction on your lungs, and then you've got a bit a bit more do blue going on. Then he gets onto the sort of four drawer. Um, Do you like that, huh? Don't do that duty. Oh, it's just bent really spent, really spent released on. Then he gets into the blow part of it, which is further here. And then he ends on the longer blow. Oh, with a bit of a barato, probably hand vibrato, thes Goodman hands the sky, so let's run the whole thing. Show it slowly again. It's not technically difficult, is it has only got one tiny bend on hold for which is that second bend the beginners learn . So is not technically difficult. Is just how much time do you want put into it to be exactly like him? I don't know. Just looking at 50% speed, do straight. Did you want to play along with it? Let's try it. - And that continues into section seven. Um, so why don't you just work on that itself? And you can just repeat that as much as you like on use the track in its entirety. If you want to go from the very beginning up to this point, maybe that would be a smart move on each time you do it, you could go from the beginning up to the end of section six up to the end of section seven for the beginning up to and eventually you will be able to play the entire thing in its entirety. Right? That's it. For the moment. This next in section seven. We continue directly on this blow part. Just continues from where it when we're living off here. It just continues on. So we couldn't stop with a nice bit. We've got blow for than draw three bent. So that's pretty cool, right? That's come back to that in a minute. On dsi. See you later. Bye. For now 13. Section 10 Guitar comes in here: Hi there. Welcome back. This is now Section seven on. There's a lot more going on in section seven. This is quite an interesting part. Let me play it. First of all, let's just listen. Show away from beginning at full speed. First. Listen to you probably. Oh, my God. It's so much information. It's just hard to define what's going on. So that's what I've done for you. So let me look at it. 45% speed and old. How can you see my cursor here? I will point out exactly what's going on. And then you can just take your own time and work through it. Um, is it legal? 33232 Okay. Okay. Sorry about that. Where do we get to? Okay, let's do that again. This is section seven. You get 33432 to free to think I went too fast. One more time. Three, three for three. Do you know, just like that last bit duty. Oh, so we'll break it up. So the last bit to three to know bending. Just, um, we could be brought to him. Throat be brought to. He's using thing. If you can use that. That's great. You learn how to do that. Wonderful. If not, you can use your hand o just a matter of personal taste, isn't it whichever you prefer? So that's really easy. This part here which he This is the sort of the theme of this section, if you like for both. Redraw event. Oh, you can see we've got it three times there. Andi. It's also the very beginning of the peace. Theo eyes typically used part off blues, and this is central, simply blues. How long? Because that weeping hop Seno he's playing Can you play this for Blow three. Draw Bent. It's just 1/2 step, Ben semi turn bend, So it's it's a B flat you get from CTO from Sea to be five home to see Hollande guys. So that's the thing to practice. If you can manage that, then you got to go. If you can't manage, that needs a bit of practice. So looking back this is just slight bends on for blows drawers on. This is a crescendo here, so you just breathe in and it's 45432 sits slightly, going up and then going down So shall we listen to the first? Just the first part of it. Oh, uh, so there's our 1st 2 notes. Uh, do do, do do do do that simples under there beard. Uh, do you do it? Feels made its preeminence Keep it clean to do. Oh, do you want Might want to pause here and practice that Andi Then we go into the next how to see what excuses do you do but like, um, take five So really, it's all on hold for It's just different degrees of bend Andi Blow varying around on hold for talking about this section here before we get into the last bit. 434343 And then the final bit that easy. Final bit. So here. This is where it's not particularly clear what he's doing on, um, when I put this little squiggle, it just means he's varying the pitch. It's really hard to define. I don't know if its really necessary to define it. Let's listen to it. Uh, no, that's the Yeah, that's the bit where told him out. Listen, Teoh, do the Yoda slow it down. Do you do the do the that's here there's the next to note. So think ghosted that note in there because it's kind of messy. And then if he meant it to be like that or or what's. But there's the recording, presuming it's all done in one take. Then you get your four blows redraw theme with that beautiful were brought to the All right . I'll leave that with you. It's quite a bit of work for you to do on this. Not technically very difficult, just a said matter of how much time you want to put into getting it to sound like this. Enjoy it. See you later. 14. Section 11 working with the guitar: Hi there. Welcome back. Hope you doing okay with this strange piece of music? We come to section eight now, and it's got lots of interesting parts to it. So let's look at the tab for the moment. One drawer and then going to to draw Bent whole step Bender, Full tone, bend thin. Released three draws with 1/2 step end September Single thing full blow. And then here he messes around with the four drawer and then just a full blown. Then the jumps of six po with the brought you on that and then it Lysander all the way down from six drawer down. 22 draw. So it's quite a nice little piece. This 17 is in full speed. Let's go to half speed librato and six they brought toe. Okay, lets try singing along to it a full speed. So you're singing down to 70 0 so I wanna look at the last bit. First the this glass Ando two I was really first dio oh, breathing in the whole time and you just talk to him. Six dropping it right down to three. You might want to pause here in practice that on then we'll look at this for blow. Six foot jump. So that's he's done it before. Isn't a what's the tune. Start like that? You last post e o on many other remnants of my trumpet playing history. That's a vehicle song, isn't it? Boom. They wait. So play for blow six. Bo without playing five. Blow. Come on. Remember the name that him Way back in the childhood somewhere. Um, all of this lot is just riffing on four again. And then this is I mean, it's quite an interesting little rise up here ending up on six. So it's sort of partly a blues scale. A bit of a bit of a bluesy scale thing. Uh, whole thing showy. They re leans on that to draw to dirt. Uh, on you can see from the graphic Kanye from the Wave form Here you've got one drawer, then the to draw Every leans on the nice little throat vibrato on the, uh Where does it come? Economies Theme. Yeah, that's so that's what this thing here is. Yeah, but, uh, an extra one in there because I like it even look up so you can see more clearly. Okay, Maybe that's the first stage to take it to one of pause there in practice it. We'll move on just now, so we'll go onto the next bit on to get just a little bit of variation on the floor. Shall I put a little bit of extra? I have to tell how much information is really needed. I'll put another little squiggle in there because it's he's messing around on the Ford drawer and then you got before blow. This is the four blow here, and this is the four is the six blow. So we go from here. Can you hear that? That's the four blow there. Uh huh. Thing for blow six. Uh oh. And then the vibrator that you got here feels to me like it's more of a hand of a barato. It's a faster being writer, and he's very good at that. And this is something which I've seen a lot of Japanese people really enjoying. They want to stereotype him, but I have seen a lot just have a student Japanese student who he used to hold the harmonica like that on his re brought a was extraordinary. His handler brought er mind you couldn't see what was going crashing into light person things. So that's a very much a hand librato sound. I hear that more with Asian people. I don't know why. It just seems to suit the air a bit better for a common you here in Vietnam? A lot. Um, not to my personal taste. Worse. Who? I Who am I right? That's the end of section eight that gets us to section nights. We doing? We're doing well. Um, we're just about to get to the bit with the guitar, where all changes and then it becomes much more, I think much more useful because then you're playing with somebody else. This is this is this is all exploring the instrument, and that's all good. But when you're playing with other people, that's a whole different area. Okay, we'll leave you with that now, and we come back with section nine in a wee bit. Okay. Season 15. Section 12 bending on 2 draw: Hi there. Welcome back. This is the section just before the guitar kicks in. Andi the same. A vicious tongue blocking. So you've got Let's just look on the top here. A little scoop up Little Chris ended up five drawer with Branta Henry broader. Something bizarre happens here. Looks like he's looking for the tongue book you hear some high notes in. They're not quite sure what's happening there. Then he gets the tongue block to five blow with Librato little Grey Sando, a man one and four blow. You brought her in that and then just scoops up to four drawer Bent hits five their fight over there and then spent four straight for bank for and then drops down into a little, probably just an out breath to get rid of some air and then bent three and four. No court has any two nights, but playing three for the same time. A double stop. We just like being. And then this phrase that will come against a lot blow dry Robin really spent out breath. They're probably just to stay alive, I should think. And then Chris Sander down in breath for three to and then along to nice librato on just right off the thief. Then we get into the guitar. So let's have a listen to the track now. Full speed for a moment. There's a to five 14 five full. Four stand to go, one in five. So but one of all 44 top down look attacks snow. Here's the Librato hand regression to inv. I've blow scoop one fold role draw because for 432 out, I talked down the broader quite a lot. There. Isn't that quite a lot there again. Depends how much of this you want to really capture. So let's have a quick look. The, um, just the first part. Oh, so it's a It's a 234 River Chris Sander going up well, breathing in landing on whole five drawer with a nice I think hands were brought, I think. Okay, try it. Here we go. Don't have a few times. You can pull us there if you want to practice. That's quite a useful little phrase when I'm sure little Walt will be proud of. Then we move on to this rather strange bit where you can hear some high notes kicking in did that. Ah, so I'm picking out five drawer four drawer. That's just here. Five drawer, four drawer for five blow. That's the bones of it that I'm picking out. Like I said, there is some Heiner. Maybe he's active ing those, uh, So it could be he's doing operatives with these being the lower notes off the or perhaps a split a split. For with these being the lower notes of the split Possibly, I don't know on then getting into this to five split for blow. Uh, which is this big lump here, I reckon. Sounds like a throat. I brought it, but I can't tell a center full speed. Sounds more like handouts. Foster again? He's quite tentative on the oh oh, e. So you can do either hand or throat brought as you wish. Little transition. Um, probably just to get some air in before he hits the one of four. Blow A wonderful drawer transition One of four blow here. So the one or four blow is all of this lot. Draw. Sorry. It's wonderful drawer. Oh, now he may have had a harmonica. That data, we brought it for him automatically. I e it was after tune like mine, Theo, where you might use his hands or his throat. That's what the throat these with your guess is as good as mine on. Then we go on to the this single note parts where he's going for drill 50 very quickly and then wavering around on the four drawer event. Part of the four drawer. Do not dio you can hear his wavering dio dio, so I've typed it out for you has as this. So it's four or five drawer and then coming on the bench for drawer, release it on bended again. That's what I'm hearing, De o dio dio. I'm in a little drop down on three and two and then on out breath eso 3 to 3 to drop down, and then same thing breathing out. I think that's what I'm hearing. This isn't a slowly no, you just hear the end, That lump there is the out breath. So we've got the end of that four drawer. The three draw the to draw and then a little puff about breath around that area, and then he kicks in with this big 34 big, fat, dirty bent cord, which starts slightly bent and releases. So if I add on the puff of air, you hear that puff of air just before he plays the big court? It needs more air than his laissez. He's gonna get rid of. That thing is really good. And you can hear that now on. And then he's riffing on for on back to 50%. Uh, all right, So that's where I've got this one here. Yeah. Then finish it off. It's kind of just sliding down towards to draw the big brought on the end. Teoh a flotilla, draw, draw, draw. It'll blow rule. So I think that out breath is on three and four is just to get some space. They can breathe in more. Theo, just get rid of the O. I think he wants a long note for that. Of course you can hear the oscillation of the picture. Not near. You don't hear it so much when it's just full speed, Theo. Real massive bend that we brought to it. Can you can have a huge bend like that. You can have a much smaller Theo. Theo. All right. I think we've gone on long enough with this particular lecture. I will stop there and seeing a minute bye for now. 16. Section 13 - bending on 3: Okay, well, that is the end of the intro. Uh huh. I told you there was a lot to do, didn't I? And now we get onto the versus where the guitar kicks in. So here comes the most important phrase of the whole piece, I think, is this That's it. You want to hear it again? We're you want to see it in time? Here it is. The only four notes starts in a slightly bent three and a bit more doctor to draw back to the three. Drawn with the double bend, the whole turn bend. I've put the broader here, but there isn't any, actually. But we can add some on Let's have a look. Black show back at the track on The reason there isn't any is because it's very hard to bend for help to put over Bryant. I wanna bend. You can't use the normal throat vibrato. As far as I know, you can use a hand librato Oh, she could have done. Or you can use a little broughtem. She's bouncing it off the lips. It's like saying whoa, well, any enough. Well, or you can slightly add the hand to just a kind of catch the home on a cup a little bit already been a hand to be brought into that. Anyway, he's chosen not to use. We brought on that. So this your first phrase, that's I think, highly significant, and that repeats right through this song from now on. So learn that you want to stop there and learn that. So another. Listen to it on again. He goes on to to do this next section that you can see. It starts to blow. Do the Dio. That's variations of that throughout this song thing. So whenever it gets hard kicks in, that's the kind of thing you're gonna hear. So it's as well to really learn all of this stuff. Probably now I think. Let's have a listen to all of that to blow to three. Whoa, whoa, whoa! That went a bit fast. Let's slow it down now for two. Teoh to bend 1 to 11 Roll with Rato so that last bit here is not very difficult. Well, to draw Double Bend is a bit technical. That might be a one blow their account. Remember Stephanie a blow? Uh, that's the second half of it. here, Sander. We owe That was too. So this is more or less correct. Oh, home way. Okay, So do you want to try all of that important section? This? Go at, say, 50% speed. All right. Are you ready? Let's go. Three drawer Blow to Teoh. Bend one. Teoh, have another go. I'll shut up. Okay. Happy with that? That's the end of section 10 and I will stop there on scene of it by now. 17. Section 14 riff and growl: Hi there. Welcome back here. We've got the same phrase again, but slightly adapted. No, they start so for the one drawer took a tap for a minute. So this means it's ah, sort of fake tongue book. It's more than just especially one drove it. I had a few other holes as well, but put him back to wonder. Well, here's in a minute and then three door to door. And then here's the main phrase, but he just beats the first note. The actual main phrase that we had in the last lecture is that we owe just kind of stuff. Is the first food the first note of that a couple times of replacing? True, I think that's me putting of a broad toe, not him. And then the second part of the tomb, which is starts here again with that fake tongue blocks were probably playing 12 and three and then compressing it. Justin told to is blowing, and he also used his hands. Oh, and then here goes up 345 blow. If I draw four drawer and four drawer and drops off, oh, drops off the end of it, and then that picks up into the next section here. Let's listen. Showy, full speed. Slow it down a bit so you can hear what's going on. Theo thing here now. Four. Drop off. Does that make sense? You want? Try playing along with that At that speed. Let's try it, shall we? Would you want to sing it first? The singing. - Oh , okay. Well, that's not fine Play. It's from beginning. Here we go. So it's one draws stomach on here. You can even see this line here. That's where the guitarist hips the guitar. Do you? No, no, just that. It's very accurate, isn't it? Okay, so that's section 11. I'll leave you to practice that with or without the track, you've got the tab for their take a robotics. Easier on. Then we'll nip into section 12 which is nice and easy. Okay, see minutes. Bye. For now, 18. Section 15-18 - nearly finished!: Hi there. Welcome back. So now we've got to at least 2/3 of the way through the piece. So I'm gonna now speed up the tuition because I figure out that I figured out that if you are still here, are you still here? Answer the question. If you're not here, then you no succeeded. So far. It's bean too much. But if you're still here, you're gonna now find a lot of this is repetitive. So here's our what I'm calling the dream sequence simply because it's got these kind of Junglee called things. So it's a very straightforward to play, isn't it? You can look down at the Tapia so it's full, full blow just leading you into, um 45 roll theme, then riffing around on the floor. The wait just drops off the end of that four, as you can see from the little squiggly mark on that Texas to section 16. So I'm just gonna keep on rolling because I think you you get this quickly. Three drawer, double bed with a growl, three drill with growl and then swimming around on that three draw again, dropping off the one in the back of that now you can stop. You've got the track at four different speeds. Full speed, 70% 50% and 35%. So you can pretty much work of this your own pace now. But this I'm just gonna point out a few things. So this is 17 now, um, we're going up to Ah, I think I can hear a three blow in there. So there's a six. Let's listen to. So it's just going really up up the harmonica she's done before. She's, you know, it's a blues you scale, I sense is a three blow in there on with six Blow on when he comes down back onto the Forsythe Theo Hospital again. So there's a bit of a head roll somewhere around there. I didn't spot from us having it, so I think it's there, that three. So I put a few Bracho in there, but you could make that into federal if you like. I think Ford Roy, so sweet, isn't it seems to have a beautiful, velvety texture on duty just drops off. Sometimes it's these little subtle things which make all the difference to somebody's playing. That's a lovely little drop off let me get on to Section 18 which is quite long, I think, keep going. First part is easy. And just on the on the three drawer, just that kind of crying, moaning. I think so with a bit of a growling there, if you want a growl, and that's what I'm saying. The dream sequence. And so it's going back into the verse again. Now. Third Wave had so many times I'm not gonna do it. So that part that judo do don't do toe first blow blow to draw Theo. It's almost like a compression, like a fake tongue block. Something like that. From this way, we owe way drops off the one draw at the end so you can pause this and go back over it. But I'm pretty sure you've got that. So this go on to the next car lots when I want Section 19 19. Section 19-22 - let's wrap it up now: even being a mistake. That's nice. Where he really keeps that UNB bent that three. You noticed that that three there is it becomes unbending. It gives it a lovely bright, not bright. It gives it a lovely, optimistic sort of feel to it. No, no, Listen, let's go from here. Cool. Um, that's correct. Over the next section is getting easier and easier. Announcement section 20 lots of three drawer bent There does that again. This is just this party was just leading towards that same riff way, Theo. Three draw, four draw, five blow four draw on Lysander There, I'm hearing he's bending before dropping down to three. And to all on the in breath. Little phrase, the the lots of use of the hands, I think. Yeah, so I can sense these. That's the last little phrase there don't, uh, mass. It'll ending to it, isn't it? Okay, um, getting that stick with it. We're gonna finish this on his The next race is Section 21. - Theo . I see what you think. Yeah. Okay, so he's going apart from that little sort of splatter beginning. So you got one drawer. There's just a nice little ladder going up. They're so you can you can practice this yourself and then we get that riffing on the three and two. Um, it's just sliding around, really is just how it's hard to write it all down. But this is my best best effort at it. And then finally going on the to draw on. And then it's nice. Little Chris Sando up 12345 up and then dropping back to the oh, let me put on full speed. Can you hear the use of tens? What? What? What? Wow. Oh oh, And then he drops. He's on to draw there. That's a noted G and he's going to go are primitive and in on six blow with the lovey hand librato five kicks in and then goes out again through six. So think of my Japanese students, remember I told you the one who kept walking into them posts because he couldn't see where he's going, holding the harmonica like that crazy guy, but not so crazy because the great librato Okay, that about wraps up the song. You could do this over and over in your own time, at your own speed. So we've enjoyed this course. As much as I've enjoyed making it. If you've enjoyed it half as much of as I've enjoyed then I've enjoyed it twice as much. Now in a minute. All right. Thank you for coming.
