Re: [Harp-L] Articulation...
Try them both. The best attack is the one you like the most.
I've been doing more "ka" for many years and just recently decided to switch to more "ta". What you like today may very well change tomorrow.
Is the best attack on a single note the "ta" using the tongue
or "ka" coming from the throat?....what's the most common?

Here's a question (probably dumb one but anyways...)
I've been playing now for nearly six years, mostly blues, and have recently
begun to record myself to go back and review to see what I could do better.
I've been in the habit of tongue blocking and articulating notes with a
tongue slap. Listening to it, I can tell that it is kind of a mushy attack on
single note playing and not a good sound a lot of times for what I am doing.
The question.... Is the best attack on a single note the "ta" using the tongue
or "ka" coming from the throat?....what's the most common? I know this
isn't an exciting topic but thanks for the help.... I don't want to be a sloppy
