[Harp-L] Teaching the bends - peanut butter!

one can reference numerous postings I've made over the years for the most accelerated method of teaching bending to exact pitch - a total rank beginner has been able to bend all notes to exact pitch within the first 2 - 4 weeks of lessons....it's all about tongue placement....do a search in the archives here or over on Modern Blues Harmonica Chat Forum.

My newest harp student described note-bending this way:
"Feels like trying to get peanut butter off the roof of your mouth!"
Cracked me up! Love it!!
Teachers: How do YOU cue the student to discover note-bending?
And what do THEY say it feels like?
Love to hear your experience.
