In Reply to: Bending while tongue blocking posted by Cliff Hall on December 29, 2002 at 11:25:37:
: I can do draw bends fairly well using the "pucker" technique, but I can move around the harp and consistently get clean single notes better with tongue blocking. My problem is with bending while tongue blocking. I can't seem to get the two together. My bending technique seems to depend on drawing my tongue back. Any hints?
: How bout' positioning your harp to one side of
your mouth ? Or stick your tongue at the lower
to mid position of your harp like a lizard and
draw-in a long gasp of air, then whatever reed
is free should respond...also you may have to
distort your face into a wide-ish grin at the
same time... Cliff?
