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.
