It's good to have you out in the open with us.  8-)  It makes it
easier to learn (from all view points).

Yes.  It was a combination of all three for me.  I learned how to play
from the Klutz book by Jon Gindick.

You might try the Weeee/Euuuu approach.  If you can whistle and change
the tone of that whistle then you have almost got it.  It is very
similar, move your move to make your harp say "Weeee" then try to make
it say "Euuuu".   I know, easier said than done.  But if I can learn
it, ANYONE can.

Yea.  I'm still trying to get people to do that.

Thanks for the input Tim.  Hopefully more people will "come out of the
shadows" and give us their opinions as well.
