comment How To Improve My Sightreading?
I'm in the middle of learning sightreading on the piano and I'd say that both absolute and relative thinkings are possible (at least that's how it goes for me). Sometimes I read relatively: "the next note will be 2 tones lower", and sometimes absolutely: "the next note is an A, and I remember where my hand is right now, and I can say that A will be right there". It's helpful to develop muscle memory for the intervals, so that you can play a tone for example one octave higher with no brain effort.

comment Noise when attempting to bend the 8th hole on a harmonica
The stronger I blow, the louder the whizz- and that's it. (BTW, errata- I've just checked; 8th hole, not 7th!)
