That is exactly what I wrote two days ago. And I have asked the
question: how could the direction of airflow have an influence to
produce an overblow. No answer so far from Mr. Ashby.

This goes into the same direction. Yes, someone should point out, I
can`t. At least not in English.
But as I wrote in my last post: I know, that it makes no difference how
you hold your harp. For bending and overbending it is always the same
what I am doing. I don`t have to change the airflow from right to left
or from half right to half left or from quarter right to left.....
Some others wrote that the Ashby-Method doesn`t work for them. same for
me. But that is not a problem. I can play overblows with the
"Traditional" way if I need to.
But then another question to Neil arises: is your method only a way to
find out how an overblow sounds, or is it really a new technique to use
for playing. I`m asking this because I Can`t imagine how one could play
a melody with one GENTLY note that wouldn`t stick out.
