David's Tip of the Day: Stormy Monday (Bars 7 and 8 Harp TAB) - Blues Standards

David Barrett Admin's picture

Using the information below...

G7 = G B D F = 1 2" 2 3 4 5 6+ 7 8 9 9+
Am = A C E = 1+ 2+ 3" 4+ 5+ 6 7+ 8+ 10 10+
Bm = B D F# = 1 2' 3 4 7 8 9'+ 10'+
Bbm = Bb Db F = 1' 2" 3' 4' 5 9 10"+

These are the lines I like to play (one note per chord... two beats each)

Example #1 = 1 2+ 2' 2" (leads to 2+ in Bar 9)
Example #2 = 2 3" 3 3' (leads to 3" in Bar 9)
Example #3 = 3 4+ 4 4' (leads to 4+ in Bar 9)
Example #4 = 5 5+ 4 4' (leads to 4+ in Bar 9)
Example #5 = 6+ 6 7 9 (leads to 4+ in Bar 10)

Give these a try and see what you think. As you become familiar with them add some passing tones, such as 6' between the 6+ and 6 in Example #5.

I will be out Saturday through Monday and will answer your forum questions and respond to your emails mid next week. Have a great weekend everyone.
