Re: [Harp-L] limited instrument?

"Problem: over blowing even for those that claim the ability is not stable,
therefore not a plausible method, for accurately over coming the
instruments stubby scales."

This is absolutely, positively untrue.  An overblow is no more "unstable"
than a regular "blues" bend or countless types of notes played on a
saxophone, trumpet etc.  An overblow can be sustained, bent etc.  Here is
an example from my own playing:

Note in particular a bent-and-then-unbent 5OB at 3:49.  Whether you like
OB/OD playing or not, to say it is not a plausible method just because YOU
can't do it is, to put it delicately, implausible.  There's nothing
unstable about the playing of Howard Levy, or Carlos Del Junco, or Jason
Ricci etc. etc.
