I have always loved pinched, whiny sounds on harp. I have often
played thru clenched teeth and that works well. Last week I
discovered (or possibly rediscovered) that if I pout out my bottom
lip, basically turning it as far inside out as I can and push the harp
hard against the lip, pucker embouchure, while playing wah wah sounds
with my hands, it gets a VERY pinched, whiny sound! It is reminiscent
of Rice Miller. I think it sounds best on low harps.
What are other ways you guys get pinched whiny sounds?
