Overblowing Hole 1
Time for me to apologize to Winslow and others for suggesting that Eb is
not a useful note. :-) Of course it is a necessary note for those reasons
Winslow pointed out, however, the context of my reply was to a person who
was just beginning overblows.
I could have said, (Begin whining mode that Moms use on their kids.)
"Your C harp already has two nice Eb notes on 4 overblow and 8 blow bend
and you hardly play with them. So what do you want with another Eb?"
Thanks to Winslow for setting me straight on the technique for playing a
sustained #1 overblow. I tried it this morning (with the covers off), and
was able to sustain it by stopping the blow reed with my finger. Now for
the adjustments and PRACTICE.
I should have reasoned that this was possible since the frequency
relationship between blow and draw for hole 1 is the same as on hole 4.
And 4 overblow is a very useful note which can be sustained.
I should have just said that #1 overblow is the most difficult and left
it at that.
But this begs another question. Is #1 overblow really the most difficult?
What about #9 overdraw?, or #10 overdraw?
