Bending and "un-bending" are two sides of the same coin. You can't completely master one without an understanding of the other. You're definitely on the right track.
: I've mastered single notes and have several songs down pretty good, but could never do the scale in 2nd position.
: The 2 and 3 draw never sounded different just louder when I tried to bend.
: I like most people I guess had trouble just with a plain 2 draw when I started out. Then I heard about the tilted embouchure and could really draw nicely on the lower holes.
: Finally I realized I was somewhat bending every time I hit a 2 or a 3 draw. That seemed to be why I never had much sound difference in the 2nd position scale.
: Now I really haven't mastered bending but I am hearing quite an improvement in the scale.
: Is this unbending thing my imagination or has anybody else come accross this.
