Hi James,

Well…you can get away with it, BUT, to get the full sound, you really need to play the chord, the triad, at least., (4 note chords are not needed. If the song has a 7th chord, play the full chord in your chopping hand and just play the triad of that chord in your bubble hand.) The bubble tone is SUCH A SPECIFIC thing: too high in range – no good, too low in range – no good (as it gets in the way of the bass), too think (with only one note) and it’s…too thin. What I suggest is to try adding just the third of the chord in the left hand: if you’re playing a bubble on C major, play a C and E in your bubbling hand. Get used to that, then when you’re ready add the 5th. It’s a building process….literally!
