Hello, welcome to this week’s harmonica lesson! This lesson is for anyone who can already bend on the harmonica but does not feel too confident about their ability to hold the bends.
I have put together a series of exercises which will help you get stronger bends on the 2, 3 and 4 draw.
You will need a C harmonica but I recommend that you try the ideas out on all harmonica keys.

Try to incorporate these exercises into your warm-up routine. Remember that the key is playing the bends slowly!
I hope that you are feeling a little more confident about what you need to work on to make your bends sound stronger.
