RE: [Harp-L] U blocking / Puckering

Puckering was entirely natural to me when I started playing, which led me to believe it was a "beginner" method. I never considered that anyone might have trouble with it. Meanwhile, I can't roll my tongue at all so I have no aspirations in the U-blocking direction.

My upper lip has a pointed upward center so I have a natural pucker shape to work with. I have no trouble blocking and can roll my tongue and I am double jointed too. :D
