Re: [Harp-L] Hole 10 bend
Tongue position is most important - pretend tip of tongue is super glued to
back of lower teeth. Move tongue into position as if you were pushing mouth
full of mashed potatoes through your upper teeth (like when you were a kid).
Don't use a lot of air pressure or force. Play like you don't want to wake the
baby. Find where the bend control is through your own series of trial and
error. It doesn't take much effort at all once you find the proper internal
tongue position, but finding it may take a bit of searching.

Now on the 10 hole (C harp), I bend it with my tongue against the back and
top of my lower front teeth then bend it down to the Bb. To get the B, I push
my whole tongue forward. That's all really finessey on the C harp, but the
movements are more pronounced the lower you go.
