I hold mine using my thumb and index finger, with the left end planted firmly against the fleshy part between the two (there must be a name for it!). I hold the back edge of the harp, leaving plenty of room to wrap my mouth around it. I hold it the same way every time, and I know that the first knuckle is above the 4 hole and second knuckle is above the 7. I find this very helpful! This setup also allows for a good cup. Pick a way that works and stick with it!
Blow your brains out,
: Holding the harmonica? perhaps im just being dum, but from the holding tips on this brilliant page, i just cant work out how to do it!
: Do i hold the harmonica in my left hand form the cup and then just use my right hands to touch a odd few notes?
: I hope ive made myself clear, it certainly doesnt seem so does it?
