[Harp-L] Rhythm harp

Like most subjects on the 'L', this one comes around periodically. My usual
remark is simple 'drum rudiments'. Inhale is right hand, exhale, left, or
vice versa. Just learning a paradiddle or consecutive triplets
will keep you busy for a while, and spawn some good phrasing too.
On a similar note, I just got booked for a couple of gigs by a local guitar
hero whose favourite thing is reggae, ska etc. So I've been doing some
appropriate listening.
I've brought this stuff up before too; when you are playing only a basic
scale, rhythm becomes v. important.I always dug Roy Richards:
Now that's getting the most out of the old tremolo!
