Give us a track from B.T. that's got on it what your talking about. Hard to know without hearing. I'm sure Popper does this on several trax, but pinpointing it would help us better understand.
: Hey Guys,
: This is my first post here. I am a huge Blues Traveler fan, and I was wondering about Popper's playing style. I know there is a link to this on this site, but it doesn't answer my question. How does he, and other harp players make those awesome runs? During solos he plays so many notes up and down the scale. I know he uses a lot of slides, but how does he get the wavy sound where you can hear the individual notes? Other players do this too...I am sorry my explanation of his sound is so vague, but I think anyone familiar with his style will understand. I've heard other harpists do this so I know it's kind of popular in more contemporary harp playing. Thanks
