Re: [Harp-L] Phrasing and Spacing

I'm not very technical really,  although I find that I do some of the things 
that people talk about being  technical. Phrasing is one of the things that I 
find that I do without thinking  of it being technical or not. As for the 
silence in between the notes, I find it  easier to listen to the drummer when I'm 
leaving notes out like that. I'm a  semi-decent drummer and it pleases me to 
hear the drum beats like that anyway so  when I'm playing I'm playing off of 
what the bass player and the drummer are  doing most of the time. There are 
times when a person has to play harmony with  what the guitar or keyboards are 
doing and I do that, but I find it easier (esp.  for the blues) to do my own 
thing within the chord structure and timing. 
        Just me.

As to  spaces - learn to "Play" the silence as if it were a note rather than  
a time that you kill until you get to start playing again.
