: I may have solved one of the greatest mysteries on this board--why so many have trouble with draw 2 (especially on G harps).
: While working on that very note today, I went to the section on toungue blocking, figuring if I'm stuck I may as well try something new while I'm at it. Lo and behold the draw 2 came out just like it's suppose to!!
: My theory is that many newbies come here to learn and pick up the recommended whistle method, then have trouble using it to achieve a decent draw two.
: I would like to test this theorem by having everyone try it both ways (pucker and toungue block) and post your results here. What have you got to lose?
: Blow your brains out,
: p.s., yes, I understand that the toungue blocking may make it more difficult to bend, but hey, I'll take what I can get for now!!
I agree, tongue block does help me on G #2 draw, mainly because i put the harp further in my mouth
when tongue block and therefore breathe correctly. I just receive my Hohner's Golden and Spec. 20 in G today
and i found out the hohners draw easier on hole 2 than my Lee Oskar G. If any you other beginners are
are having trouble with you LO G on low draws, get a Spec. 20, At least on it, its get a decent hole 2 draw and
i think the hohner sounds better anyway.
