How to do Dip Bends on Harmonica

Written by admin on . Posted in Blog: Harmonica Articles, Harmonica Lessons

I hope you enjoy this quick little video that introduces “Dip Bending”.

Dip Bending is probably one of the most important blues techniques you’ll ever learn. This video assumes you already know how to bend, so if you want to develop your ability to bend I think you will really enjoy my quick and simple 7 minute video lessons found on Happy Harpin’.

You will need a D harmonica to be in tune with this video.

If you’re a beginner and this video was challenging, you’ll probably be much better off checking out my videos for beginners. Click Here to check em’ out: Happy Harpin’

Thanks a ton for reading and I’ll be in touch soon.

Your Harmonica Buddy,

    Seem to spend more time on guitar and mandolin, but when I come back to the harp….it just talks to me. I see me spending more and more time with it. Jams ALWAYS welcome a harmonica player….I’ll get there one of these days.
