RE: Hohner 365

G. Weiser kindly cleared up my confusion about the upper end of my new
Hohner 365:

More great info on the 365!  I was unable to find the 365's note layout at
the usual spots (both Hohner sites Coast2Coast, Harp Depot).  Now I can see
why the thing is a bit "difficult" up at the high end.  It is sure is sweet
down low, tho'.

Maybe I should have gone or the SBS.  The 365 does work well for my intended
purpose of playing Rice Miller-style low-keyed harp tunes. I love chugging
down on the low end to create some neat rhythms, too.

Thanks, Glenn!
