in the “Harmonica Single Notes for Beginners” video, at 10:01 you say that in order to play shorter notes, one could say “ta-ta-ta” against the harmonica.
I was able to follow up to that point — I could do the lip blocking I think reasonably well according to the advice. However, if I attempt to reach the harmonica with my tongue to block it for “ta-ta-ta”, then my tongue breaks the lip block.
I would appreciate advice: how do I do the “ta-ta-ta”, especially when it is a draw? Does the tongue then reach the harmonica, or not really, does it stay behind?
