[Harp-L] All Overbends Are Not Created Equal?
Thu Mar 16 21:23:52 EDT 2017
I still haven’t played an overblow in public, but I’m inching closer. Well, millimetering closer.
I do gap my own harps.
6 overblow is increasingly consistent. 7 overdraw is a real bear. Maybe 4 overblow is a bit easier than 5 overblow?
Does the difference in pitches between the natural blow and draw notes for a given chamber affect the difficulty of playing an overbend? Is it harder when the natural blow/draw notes are a half step apart rather than a whole step apart (or more, in the case of 10 overdraw)?
Thanks in advance,
