Re: [Harp-L] country tuning songs -- Melody Maker

I am going to retune one of my extra C harps to Melody maker so I can use it on some bluegrass and country songs where I need the specific melody notes. But I reallly like those rich draw bends on 3 draw for a lot of country stuff, too... I wonder how difficult it will be for an old fart like me to adjust to having that A note on 3 blow?

With all the talk about country tuning (Draw 5 tuned up half step) or the double-country tuning with the F# added in two octaves:

What about using the Lee Oskar Melody Maker tuning that not only adds two F#s to the C harp in cross position(G) but changes the Blow 3 to an A, eliminating the need to bend to get that A note?
