: I'm learning to play with the instructions on this site and just started the hand tremolo. The way it tells you to hold your hands in the instructions is pretty uncomfortable though, so i devised a more comfortable means. It still creates a volumous airtight pocket and works great (with the larger part of the cup near the low numbers and everything) but I'm wondering if theres something I'm missing. I don't want to get too much in the habit of playing like that in case further down the road it'll cause a problem - I really don't know the extent of what I'm getting in to.
I also find the hand cupping most people teach uncomfortable. I use a different position for my lower hand, and it works fine. That's the great thing about the harmonica: if something doesn't work for you one way, you can try another way until it does work. There's no harm in doing this. We're all different, and the harmonica is probably the most personal instrument there is. Do whatever works for you, and you should be right.
