: For about a week i'm learning the harmonica. Single notes go very well, but I just can't seem to get the draw on hole 2 right. That's the only note I'm having problems with, all the others go fine.
: Is this a common problem for beginners? My harmonica is brand new, so that shouldn't be the problem. Anybody?

Greetings Carrie:
Fear not, this is par for the course. Some notes just don't happen as well as others. Try doing the 1, 2, 3 draw chord, then narrowing down to only draw 2. Usually it's a matter of breating technique. Be sure you breathing air in deep to you chest and not just doing an upper airway exchange: this is a common practice and causes many problems like, being out of breath, poor tone and reeds not sounding. Practice, practice, practice... Don't get too frustrated with hole 2 draw, move to other thing, experiment, try tunes, then come back to the problem areas.... You'll get it!
