Re: Chromatic octave tips? - scales - Clarke?

G's website advises practisng yr smiles - and practice them lots!

Not being a happy-jack at best of times it's a real bummer for me too - must be the chimpanzee inside.

On another note - I understand for blues you play 3rd position (?)

so does this mean most players stay within the D blues scale range all the way through the song or do they then go to to the G blues scale (play all over it) for the IV and the A blues scale for the V?(playing three different positions for a song - which i think sounds exciting if not difficult)

... as opposed to playing parts of those scales staying within the D - as you would playing 2nd position on a G diatonic..?

finally got to hear some William Clarke - The Hard Way - it's a hell of a cd and i guess there is some chrom in that from the sound of it?

The cd says this is the most 'jazziest' of his cds(?) and that the others are more bluesy -not complaining, mind you. Not at all.

The big stretch needed for octaves on the chromatic is pretty uncomfortable.
Any technique advice for making the embroucher more comfortable?  Any
particular instrument/mouth piece easier for beginners?
