Don't know anything about the songs.But, I think I can help you bend some notes. The lower notes are more easily bent because the reeds are longer. So, I'd start there. Also, if you're playing a wood harp, soak it in warm water for 20 minutes or as long as you can stand watching it sit in a glass of water before you just have to grab it and play it. I prefer D and a plastic Hohner because it's easy. If you can play single notes start with the 4 hole if not, it will be hard to bend anything and you have to go back to start and you don't get 200 for passing Go! Once you have the single note down, draw on the 4 and say "WoW" that should make the proper motion with your tounge and you can take it from there. Let me know how it goes. Good Luck, Jerry.
