Re: [Harp-L] Question from a rank beginner
I'm only a year in and still suffer on the 2 draw. There's a lot of good free
examples out there that are helping me, If you don't have resource's to a live
teachter get a book, I am using them now, the hard part is not using them as a
coaster like I did for the first 3 months and actually study them as you would
any other course.

Subject: [Harp-L] Question from a rank beginner
So I'm a beginner beginner.
I have a Marine Band D harmonica and a book by a guy named Marcos as
He has us going up and down the harmonica blowing and drawing.
Everything is very easy thus far, except...
When I try to draw on holes 2 and 3, I get this very dull sound, almost as if
the air is partially blocked or the reeds aren't vibrating.
I tried the same thing on a few other harps I had laying around and got the same
This struck me as odd because all the other holes worked so easily. Why should
those two be a problem?
I wrote to a more experienced person who said that these two holes are a problem
when drawing. And he suggested I write to this list to ask for suggestions for
overcoming this problem.
Nowhere in Marcos's book does he ever hint that these holes might be a problem,
and yet they react VERY differently from all the others.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be very welcome.
Also self-study programs people like would be much appreciated. Just keep in
mind I'm a rank beginner.
