Song Keys; What's this Harp?
RE: Figuring out Song Keys:
I guess I consider myself an intermediate harp player. Those of you
advanced and 'God's gift to harp' players may be able to help me out. When I
want to figure out the key of a song to jam with, I just pull out, say, a
Special 20 in C or something. Then when I listen to the song, I just follow
the chord progression until it comes back each time to the "1" chord. When
it does, I match the key of the song to the corresponding-sounding note on my
harp among holes 4-7---unless I get lucky with the key of harp I happen to
have in hand and I'm already in 2nd position; then, of course, 3Blow jives
with the "1" chord of the song. Question: Why did no one else mention this
tecnique in response to requests for info about how to figure out song keys?
Am I wrong? Out of key??? Maybe little Johnny really IS the only one OUT
of step. ???
RE: What's this Harp I'm using?
Would someone please clarify the differences and/or similarities in the
- Special 20..besides the obvious plastic comb
- Pro Harp..is there anything 'Pro' about it?
- Cross Harp..What of Hohner's new venture?? I seem to really like the
sound and comfort of them. Am I alone? I don't see mention of them?
How do they compare...to each other...and to others, as well?
