Bend Notes (Portuguese)

Hello friends, how are you? All right?
Here is Marcelo Naves, Harmonica Player and Hohner endorsee here in Brazil.
Here are some of my videos, where I teach a little about the Diatonic Harmonica techniques for beginners, the videos are in Portuguese. Hope you like it. Big hug

Great @MarceloNaves :sunglasses::metal:

I almost swallow my tongue practicing the bends… a never ending practice routine.

Try to close your throat and slightly increase your breathing, without exerting force with your mouth or tongue! I like what I call a guide vowel, where you try to reproduce the vowel U to repeat this movement in the throat at the moment of the Bend.

Hope they help
