Tip of the Day: Articulate Speed

David Barrett Admin's picture

Which embouchure is fastest... Pucker or Tongue Block? There's no difference... they both can play as fast as the other, BUT, Pucker can play faster articulations due to the back AND front of the tongue is free to articulate (in Tongue Blocking the tip is on the face of the harmonica)... think Ta Ka Ta Ka Ta Ka... etc. So, in the end, we all need to know how to do both to be a well-rounded harmonica player.
