Thanks for putting this up GH. I need this.

Could you just check your tab though vid at 3:40 says

IV chord:
+1 +2 -2 -3' / +4 +5 +6 +6* / +7 +8 +9 +10''

and yours reads

IV chord:
+1 +2 +3 -3' / +4 +5 +6 +6* / +7 +8 +9 +10''

It's throwing me.

@GH: You should you put this chord tab in your profile for permanent reference like you had me do with the tab or the common pentatonic breath patterns.

OK OK OK It's me +3 and -2 are the same. I try not to use +3 because -2 can be more expressive. Dang. Sorry.

yeah... tooka :) I guess there are some situations where the 3 blow makes more sense. Besides the 7ths chords I also found it useful when doing trills going from the 3blow to 4blow.

hvyi, that's a good idea. I'd go even further. We should start a 'Adams lessons thread' where we link threads dedicated to single from Adam's YT stuff... like this one. Maybe people posting their own takes of the lessons and people critizising.. etc.,..

Wait, I'll do it right now.

@GH: I figured out the common pentatonic breath patterns on my own. Adam's lessons are great, but he doesn't deal with any positions besides first, second and third. Not every tidbit of objectively useful harp info necessarily relates to one of Adam's lessons.

Anyway, your chord tabs provide useful reference material independent of Adam's lessons on harmony.

Here's the intro solo from vid 1:
-1 +2 -2'' -2' -4 -4' -4 -1 -1 -1' +1 +2 +3 -3' +5 -4 -3' -3 -2 -4 +6 -4 -4' +6 -4' +4 -4 -3' -2 -2'' -2'' -1

And if you combine it with these old Adam classics you have the basics of 12 Bar Blues.
