I’ve been trying to get the technique of bending down for a while now, and I think I am making some progress, but I am not sure if it’s the right kind of progress.
As mentioned in another post I can make a short bend on hole 4, and I THINK I do this by blocking the nose in some way OR by inhaling in a way that feels like I’m “sighing” like a horse but backwards (sorry it’s a bit hard to explain) but this bend lasts for no longer than a few seconds.
Then today I tried to draw while making an “oo” sound whilst ALSO holding my nose with my fingers, and then I was able to bend for a longer period of time, and the bend was more in tune (according to the tuner I’m using) I also checked with an “ee” sound, but that did not produce a bend. The thing is though, holding your nose while playing does not look very attractive
So my guess is that the nose has something to do with it, but how do I go about it in terms of blocking the air properly, and am I even on the right track when it comes to bending?
Hope I am making sense!
