I always thought he used a Slide Harp type instrument in the key of C. It's a diatonic harp with a chromatic button to give you a half-step up when the button is pushed in.

The Beatles: Love Me Do
We´ve all heard it. I don't know about you, but I have never attempted to play it until just now, I have a student who wanted to learn it so I transcribed it for her.
My question is: Is Lennon using a chromatic on this one? The intro works fine on a c-diatonic in 2:nd position but when the harp plays the bridge, he plays both F# and F. He is clearly not bending and the harp sounds like a chromatic. I always assumed that Lennon would play diatonic, but it seems I was wrong.
Anyone know anything about this one?
