Harmonica - Bent Notes

The Bendometer

  • The Bendometer is a program created by Joel that will allow you to see when you are bending a note and how far you are bending it.

  • You can install a working version of this software for a small donation of your own choosing. Anything from $7.00 up, depending on what you think of the product after you have tried it. Just go to HarpSoft .com for the installation instructions.

  • When you open the program on your computer it will look like this.

  • Now, if you take up your computer mic and play a "2 draw" on your "C" harmonica, you will notice from the screenshot below that you are playing the note "G". Blow notes are displayed above the numbers and draw notes below the numbers.
