: The AP instrument tuner is a great help in bending. However, the program doesn't read my blow 9 or my draw or blow 10. If you have the program let me know what I should try. Also, its been three weeks I am having pretty good success on bending 4, 6, 8 and the first two bends on 3. I just can't seem to get anything below that. Are there any more tips you could give me? Thanks

Try this. When bending the lower notes (2 or 3 draw), try plugging your nose as and experiment in see if it enables you to pull the note down further. If it works, experiment with slightly sniffing at the same time your bending. I did this and it allowed me to prevent air from escaping. I was even able to bend notes on harps that I thought were too stiff. Good luck!
