: Am just a beginner--first harp was a Special 20 "C". Am feeling comfortable with it--able to get all the blow and draw notes easily. Bought a Lee Oskar "A" over the weekend--am having real problems getting the hole 2 draw. Is this because it's tuned lower--do harps break in (loosen up)?
If you look back through past posts you will find several referring to difficulty with the draw 2 on an new Lee Oskar in "A"-- one of them was mine!! I wish I knew exactly WHY it is so much more difficult than the other holes, but it seems to be a fact of life. Keep banging at it, use this site, relax with your technique, and use the "force" if necessary and it will come. BTW, the lower key IS more difficult (if you try a "D" you will find draw 2 easy.)
Blow your brains out,
