: Is moving your mouth in the "wee-ou-wee" motions the proper technique for bending? Also, what does everybody think of John Popper (from Blues Traveler)?
: Yeah, like that. Your probably playing better
than you realize. You go for those pitched notes,
sometimes hitting them subtlely with a slight change to the buzz that you hea-ah.( thats how we say it in Boston) That is, buzz if you want to sus
tain the notes as you go from one to another. You
might try to make each note sound more like a
harmonic, which you would hea-ah only briefly with
out sustain. Popper plays harmonically and it
takes him where he wants to go. You just have to
practice until you can do it. "e-o-u"
