How to make this sound

Egg head @EGG This vowel is a short vowel. The mouth is held in a much wider lateral or smile position than for @fish , and the bottom jaw is held slightly further open (down), and moves up slightly at the end of the sound. The tongue is held in the same position as for @FISH . There is also an extra puff of air pushed out from the throat at the end of the production of this sound.
Lead is heavy metal pl
Not "To lead the way"

Beware!! This sound should not sound like @CAT See the exercise Mergers CAT - EGG

Limerick

Benjamin Gregory Berry
Never drinks red wine or sherry
But giving him whisky
Is a little bit risky:
He tends to get terribly merry!
