I always wanted to create a project like this: A 6 day series where harp players get one short riff each day and an MP3 Playalong Blues so they can just down and play their HARPS out!!
I created the “Riff-of-the-Day” mini-course as a warmup for my upcoming 6-Week “Blues Harp-Style” online learning course for harp players. So if you play the harp, register FREE for RIFF-OF-THE-DAY right now.
If you don’t know what a riff is ... that explanation is one of the 10 micro-videos you get on the BHROTD Welcome Page, but in the case of these particular riffs, which are all ‘melodic’ riffs: it’s a short melodic phrase that you can use over and over again in different ways ‘over’ the underlying bassline and accompaniment. If you’ve ever learned a new language by learning small phrases you can string together, that’s kind of what riffs are – only with Blues riffs, you can use the same riff over and over to create a kind of musical momentum and get the feel of the swing groove that underlies the Blues.
The 6-Day Mini-Course also includes a playalong Blues MP3 so you can sit down and play it all immediately – it’s like you’re immediately having a Blues conversation.One #Harp riff each day - with a Blues playalong MP3 Click To Tweet
When you sign up for “Riff-of-the-Day” you get a daily email that links you to a short video. In that video I go over the riff, show you how to play it, how to break it apart, how to use parts of it in different configurations to really play with the playalong MP3.Karaoke step aside, Blues #Harp 'Riff-of-the-Day' is Blues Harpaoke!
