Hi all, when and how to breathe out during the intro too the boogie or do you rely upon the blow notes for getting air out, when I watch your video Liam I hear you breath out but how are you doing that without blowing through harp. I think I hear you breath before 6 flutter? thanks Edited: but wait no it sounds like your breathing in after the first -5 flutter which doesnt make sense because surely your exhaling due to all the air you took in? and it doesnt look like you take the harp away from you face so are you blowing out your nose? Edited: I just managed to get to the -7 flutter easier by taking harp away after the first -5 top line. HAHA its like a puzzle eh. note to Liam: this is the first time i've followed a video with tabs on any blues track as I normally play Christian songs so I dont know if you talk about when to inhale or exhale on other songs or riffs, this would be helping info to include especially with some blues stuff. I know Adam G he talks about releasing air which has helped me link riffs together. thanks

Hi Liam is the backing track available for the lesson "chord tones" I believe it's now called " 5 tips for soloing" it's in the video. I'd like to hear it more when I'm on the move. Thanks

I'm using one of Liam courses called "5 steps to soloing". It has 2 draw half step b & 3 draw whole step. Just for pointers leading up to this I have a cheap old Casio keyboard, I've been studying the layout of the harmonica notes and testing the sounds of bends with keys on the keyboard, black keys flat on left, & sharp on right. Also Richard sleigh has a very cheap download where he plays each bend for a long period of time so getting used to hearing the bent note is very important, often when you hear people play it's quick. So the video here of Liam is helpful because the notes are played long and slow so my ears could tune in.

Why is it on beat 3? How would one know that if it was a song you didnt know and you hear it on radio eg. Sorry it's my learning style. I get hung up on small things. Is it because it's a slow song? What's the logic? Not getting at you as you didn't write the song. Is it common? I play guitar for the church so I feel timing is very important. And it's something I'm not always in tune with.

Hi, what learning plan would you advise? I'm feeling stuck. Spend lots of time on techniques, bends small licks(trying to hit bends direct). I play by ear when picking out notes for songs BUT when playing songs I know I'm bleeding notes. I'm probably watching too many videos on YouTube so I then start practicing what they entice me with. So I got too many projects on. I'm a disordered soul in general. Do you have a learning plan on pdf or a method you could suggest? Thanks
