8, 9 & 10 Blow

OK, so you’ve made it up to the high end of the harp, and believe me things get pretty high pitched up here so it might be an idea to use a lower pitched harp (like A or G) for practising this. The technique used for blow bends is very similar between the holes 8, 9 and 10, the main difference is that as you get higher, the volume in your mouth get’s smaller – try whistling a note then make it higher, you’ll notice that your tongue rises and the mouth volume gets smaller, this is a similar thing.

The nearest thing I can think of to doing a blow bend is something like trying to whistle a very high note while making a shhh sound with your tongue. Mess around with it!
