Here is a general tip for bending.
-Put your harmonica down.
-Whistle the first part to the theme to "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly".
You see how your mouth moved around to create the difference in the notes right next to each other?
-Practice doing those same mouth movements without any whistling sound.
-Pick up your harmonica.
-In whistle form, make those movements while drawing the hole, be it the simple 4, the tougher 3, or the infamous 2.
That will get you bending. Now a further tip for those holes that just don't seem to work. Draw through your nose as well, this opens up your sinuses. It helps. So that's my little tutorial on drawing. I hope it serves you in good, not evil.
