2 Draw not 3 Blow

I have taken a few lessons with Mike Caldwell…

There are a few things he always keeps telling me…among them is this…

Use the 2Draw instead of the 3Blow to end a phrase…

As you know, the 2Draw and the 3Blow are the same note…

However, I often gravitate to the 3Blow…

Why prefer the Draw?

Well, it allows you to bend the note and thus adds more expressiveness to the note…

Whenever possible use draws because you are able to bend those notes…in the 1-6 holes…

It is difficult to force yourself to do this….I have tried…

But a new thing I am going to try is to hear a slide into the note…if I hear it, it probably will help me to do it…

Did an hour this morning….

Still working on the Study Song. It is getting much better as I record it. I have done a few blog posts on that subject, but I need to really follow the idea of recording myself earlier.

My goal is still to get this done by the end of the week.
