It's about a week after mastering the hole 2 draw and I had to read just about every instruction before getting it to work. I even got tons of e-mail replies from HohnerUSA when after e-mailing them that my harp is broken.
OK so what i do just to make sure i get the perfect 2nd draw note:
WHEN YOU DRAW THROUGH THE 2ND HOLE, AT THE SAME TIME INHALE IN THROUGH YOUR NOSE TOO.
and you'll definitely get it!
think of it like taking a breath of fresh air.
the sound you get when the 2nd draw sounds muffled is when draw only in your oral cavity. it's kinda of like drawing through a straw (you wouldn't breath like you would when sucking from a straw)
eventually when you get it, you can practice with the 2nd hole draw to test if you have the correct breathing.
anyway that's my tip
please reply if it helps or if it doesn't help
remember, whatever you do with your harp, do not stop trying!
