Look how easy she is playing the 1, 2, 3 hole ?

How much of that is technique?

My 1,2,3, harp holes are not playing that well and not that much responsive

Technique. I don’t even have to watch the clip. I saw it’s Christelle.
The thing to understand is that before she was a harmonica player, Christelle was already a serious classical Oboe player. She has an awesome embouchure and a serious disciplined work ethic. She once told me about her practice routine. This was 10 years ago when she lived in Australia. Christelle is far from a typical harmonica player.
Maybe the harps are adjusted also, but I have no doubt Christelle could play any harp in my kit.

Echo SuperBee. Technique. And time on task, task being technique on holes 1, 2, and 3. Christelle certainly has put in the time.
