B. S. Blues Part 1 DownloadB. S. Blues Part 1 DownloadThis song is a study in the six not blues scale. This is one of my more difficult songs due to the exacting bends needed on hole three. If your bends here are weak or sloppy, the minor key blues will not likely work as well for you as the standard blues, which is more forgiving of sloppy bends. Being able to confidently and accurately play the blues scale will add many possiblilites to your playing, including playing over minor keys. . . .

Chasin' Lost Sonny DownloadChasin' Lost Sonny DownloadPlease note that there are two things different about this song, “Chasin' Lost Sonny.”  
First, it is twice the price.  That is because it was at least twice as hard to prepare as anything else here in the Filisko Store.  
The second is that there is not a single defined final arrangement for the song but instead, numerous building blocks that you will need to arrange into your own version of Sonny's stylistic.  If you goal is to capture his special style, you will need to do a lot of listening to the numerous versions of this type of piece that he recorded.  Some of those are listed in the song notes.  You will hear these building blocks and countless variations of them.  Please also go back and review the song notes often and continually listen to the sample tracks on the CD. 
I. O. U. Blues DownloadI. O. U. Blues DownloadThis is a study in slow blues and in developing the EP (exhale push). IOU Blues stands for Inhale Only Ultimate Blues. Most of the powerful blues sounds come from inhaling, so it made sense to me to write an inhaling only study song. This is much in the spirit of the slow blues by Little Walter, but does not have the advanced bending demands on hole 3. Be sure to read up on the Breathing Guides.

MB-16 Blues DownloadMB-16 Blues DownloadThis song is a study of the melody for Little Walter's song "My Baby" played over 16 bar form similar to "This Train," "When the Saint's go Marching In," "Momma Don't Allow," and "Crawdad Hole." Since the V chord comes in early in the form and is played for two bars, these chord changes can be quite difficult to solo over for harp players who are only used to playing over the 12 bar form.
Sonny's Shuffle DownloadSonny's Shuffle DownloadThis song is a study of the 12 bar blues acoustic shuffle playing of Sonny Terry with most of his characteristic unique sounds, techniques, licks and phrases. It is my opinion that Sonny’s default embouchure is a one-hole tongue block
