“Give Me Some Loving”

Give Me Some Lovin”, the first song on Taking the Lead uses a little of every primary feature thatcoupling brings to the harmonica world. Two diatonics provide those distinctive Hammond B3 organ chords,all the notes necessary for Stevie Winwood’s lead vocal line and a dramatic three chord diatonic rhythm progression to close with. A more convincing instrumental delivery of this song just isn’t possible for any other reed instrument. There’s a powerful musical niche for these coupled diatonic combinations.Coupling supplies missing notes in the low octave without sacrificing the integrity of those beefy low octave chords; a huge benefit for anyone that decides to use this method.
