3. On chromatic you can get octaves anywhere on the instrument,
either blowing or drawing, by having your mouth mouth 5 holes and your
tongue blocking 3. On Hohner and some other models, the 8 hole draw
button in is a C, the 12 hole draw button in is a D, therefore it is
the only place without the octave possibility.
