Re: [Harp-L] butterfield

If I remember correctly, Paul is playing a 2 draw and 5 draw double stop.
He holds it that long because he plays softly and also he might have
figured out how to expand and contract the diaphragm whil inhaling.  You
can play a note for an extremely long time if you get over the paradigm
that the diaphragm expands only when inhaling.

6 draw bend is F.  That is called the b9.  It acts as a chordal extension
to the b7 D note in the chord.

Why is F not in the key of E?  Every note is in the key of E.
