chromatic holding?

I play a chromatic harmonica and when I hold it I can’t find I good position. Either It hurts or I can’t use hand technice or I can’t press the button (which is the whole point of chromatic)
Can anybody give me any tips?

Well, I have a Hohner Super Chromonica 270. I take my left hand and kinda cradle it, with my thumb on the bottom and my pointer finger on the top. Then the rest is different everytime! Usually I take my right palm and place it against my left, putting my right pointer finger on the button.

Its hard to do without pictures, but you could always go on YouTube and watch some videos of the greats.

Or head over to ‘@ge’ at Slidemeisters…that is a chromo only forum. He will be more than willing to help you!
