David's Tip of the Day: Laws of Blues Harmonica - Exhale Before You Play

David Barrett Admin's picture

Our most common position is 2nd Position, and when playing in 2nd Position we draw (inhale) much more than we blow (gives us access to draw bends). For this reason, every time you pick up the harmonica to play your reflex should be to exhale before starting.

This is consistent with 3rd Positions as well, but not so for 1st Position where we focus on playing more blows than draws.
