My aunt gave me an old harmonica yesterday, and i really enjoy playing it. It’s a HERO 24 Hole Chromatic Harmonica with Slide -M1015. I wanted to try and learn some blues on it, so looked up some tutorials online. Most blues is on the draw note or something i think.
My problem is that my lungs seem to be getting too full. I’m not getting out of breath, but the complete opposite: when im playing i find i have to stop because i physically can’t inhale any more!
I hear people say that you’ve got to breath through the harmonica, which i try to do. However, i find that i can’t empty my lungs fast enough on the blow section, before having to draw again. Obviously, if i play at a very slow tempo, so that i can literally breath at normal pace through the harmonica, that’s fine, but most pieces are a lot faster!
I probably failed at explaining this very coherently, but thanks for helping!
