Why Pay to Learn How to Bend Notes on the Harmonica?

I love finding information on the internet. It's a great place to research airline tickets, a great place to make hotel reservations, a great place to wander and learn all sorts of random things.
Unfortunately, it's also a place where many -- though not all, of course -- of the people offering free information don't really know what they're talking about.

There's some good free information online about bending, some not so good free information, and some really bad free information. Unfortunately, in order to know the difference between them, you have to already be good at bending!

But in my opinion, the bottom line is this:

I've spend decades developing an organized, proven, method for teaching people how to bend notes on the harmonica, and how to use those bends when playing blues, rock, and country music. Using my background in experimental psychology, I've honed this method over the years by doing "controlled experiments" with groups of students, and eventually distilled what I learned down into a single package.

Though not cheap ($22.95), my Bending the Blues package will get beginners (or harp players who can't bend) bending right away, and give them (or more advanced students) years of great stuff to work on.

Or, if you prefer, you can spend lots of time online looking for free information on bending, and if you are lucky, you'll find material that will help (and not hurt), and save yourself the price of dinner at a fast food joint, and a movie with popcorn and a coke. If it takes you hundreds and hundreds of hours to learn to get your first bend, as it did me, well, you might end up saving a few cents an hour!

Please make the decision that seems best to you. I'm just trying to be both honest and self-serving in describing the situation as I see it...
