I have been playing for some months now and have started dabbling with hand techniques.
The thing is, I find it difficult to get enough space for both hands while keeping a good mouth position, especially when angling the harmonica to play single notes. It becomes all awkward, and even though I have relatively big hands, I cannot seem to close them properly around the harmonica, and make a big difference in sound colour when opening them using the hand techniques.
When I look at the instruction videos, my hands are placed correctly. It’s just, well, awkward. Doesn’t really come naturally.
Anyone else having (or had) similar issues? Any suggestions and solutions?
Thanks a bunch and Happy Holidays!
