Click on the link right above the first post here that says PLAYING 2 DRAW. I don't think you're the first person to ask this question. Sometimes the problems is a lousy harmonica that leaks air and is difficult to play 2 draw, but 9 out of 10 times it is poor breathing technique. It is rarely a 'gapping' problem. My students ask this question all the time.
: I can hit every single note on a LO diatonic "C" both
: blow and draw. But, so help me, #2 draw is impossible.
: I know I am new but I have tried everything. In my reading, there is a lot said about tuning the reed and
: gap. I tried that on a cheap harmonica that was also
: impossible to play #2 draw. I increased the gap, slightly and now I can play the #2 draw on the cheap model. Reading states that increasing the gap should make it harder to draw! I'm not sure where to go next?
