: yeah, I know it can be done, just not by me! At most I can (sometimes) get 3, but when I draw my throat back, and really dig to get that lowest note, I get.....NOTHING! Nada, zip. Just air, no sound. This happens on all my harps, but worse on the Suzuki Promaster - on that one I can only get 2 notes before getting zip. I can do best on the Lee Oskars, but still can't get the lowest tone, UNLESS...
: Maybe I AM getting the lowest note, and missing one of the upper ones? I don't have the best ears in the world. For that matter, unless I'm by myself, it's unlikely that I have the best ears in the room. I can bend, now I'm working on being able to directly hit the correct note without going up and down all over the place. And, oh yes, I'm also working on knowing what the correct note is...
: Any of you harpers got suggestions? I appreciate it...
A chromatic tuner might help, it will show what note you are hitting and most will show how far off you are.
I believe Korg makes a decent one for under $20.
Of course you will need a mic.
Good luck & keep at it, it will come.
