From Manny's discussion to here. Thoughts much appreciated.:
I've been working a bit at pedal tones and the idea of bending notes came to mind. It's kind of fun to see how low you can bend a low C (I can go to Eb. ) as well as bending notes inside the staff. As a matter of fact, I can play an F arpeggio (from first space F down) all open.
So, first question:
Apart from having fun and the interesting feeling that might help with a warm-down, what other innovations are there with bending pitches? Ie I know it shows mastery of the instrument, the better you can do so (an instructor told me of a friend who could play a C scale up to high C all open ), but how can this type of exercise be utilized and does exercising it really help?
How about bending pitches up? It's distinctly harder. Would it be worth it (along with the above) to develope?
