I'm puttering around with my G harp and I remembered a great breathing drill I'd like to share. This came about this as part of my effort to achieve a decent sounding 2 draw.
Wrap your mouth around a hole that's been giving you difficulty. Using your diaphram, push all the air out of your lungs (suck in your gut!). Pause momentarily, then allow your diaphram to expand slowly and fully. This will create a vacuum and air will flow through the harp into your lungs. The key is DO NOT BREATHE! What you want is air to "flow" in, NOT be "sucked"in. Think of your gut as the bellows on an accordian. The sound you make will be full and sweet.
Try this technique, I think you'll dig it.
