The "D" harps definitely are easier to play, due to the
less thick reeds used. I really like D harps, and A, of course, is a popular
blues key that the D harp crosses to quite nicely.

I'd suggest a Lee Oskar or a Pro Harp, which is a Special 20 with black covers.
For some reason, I like the Pro Harp sound better.
