Here is the follow-up to last week’s lesson on The Pink Panther. If you haven’t done that lesson yet I recommend you do so as this one won’t make much sense without it!
About Those Bends!
As with last week you are going to be undertaking some extreme harmonica gymnastics. This involves deep bending on the 3 draw.
The response to the main theme only differs by the last 3 notes and the main difficulty will be jumping straight from the 1 draw to the 3 draw whole bend. I suggest you practice that particular move in isolation to really nail it. Quite a lot of people accidentally hit the 2 draw instead of the 3 draw so be mindful of that!
The bridge section has a horrendous repeating lick that jumps between the 3 draw whole step bend and the one and a half step bend (bottom bend). You will also need to be able to enunciate both bends with your tongue. Practice this particular section really slowly.
