Melody Makers are interesting harps indeed. I have heard Lee and others
make play incredible music on these harps. They are tuned as follows...
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
C|E|A|C|E |G|C|E|G |C
However I personally don't like the 9 draw tuned half a step sharp, I
feel that particular note looses some it's "funkyness" when you can't
bend that note. Anyone who's proficient enough at bending those top note
will have no problem getting that F# when they need it.
