Sorry for the delay in replying.I just saw your post this morning.
The way I get both draw bends on the two hole is as follows. When I was learning it I practiced it in one breath. Starting with plain 2 draw, then point my tongue up to about a 1/4" above the back of my front teeth and then pull tongue back and point straight up to the roof of my mouth. Slightly touching the roof of my mouth. I try to keep my tongue "pointy" if that makes any sense. I practiced this for a couple of weeks. I also noticed that the more often you bend a reed the more flexable it seems to get and is easier to bend. I hope this helps you.

: Hi Ray. I have the opposite problem of you, I can do the 3 bends on 3 hole perfect, but the full step bend on the 2 hole is a real tease.
: Half step on 2 hole works fine, but the fullstep is only about 2/3 or maybe on a good day 3/4 step. Have you got any tips for me on that one?
