I am way to excited for the blues right now but I am finally nailing the 2 draw bent. All the way. I may ruin my Bb harp tonight but I am gonna keep dragging that note down all night. Thanks for all the encouragement along the way.

Way to go 70! Ain't it great when lights start comin' on...? I'm strugglin' through some of the same stuff on keyboards right now, even though I've been fakin' 'em for over 40 years. Practice time is the key...and raw talent, neither one of which I have alot of,lol!

Well done 70!

Once you've got hitting them 'in isolation' nailed down, the next step is hitting the bent notes in the middle of a bunch of other notes. The Low C scale on a C harp is a good place to wear out a harp while practicing hitting bent notes!

Or 'Bent Mary' (Mary had a Little Lamb, but with almost all of it on 2 or 3 draw with various bends). Or 'One Way Out'.

The bent 2 draw - doorway to the blues!
