Re: [Harp-L] blue notes

Blow bend hole 5 (overblow) or stick a valve on draw 6 and blow bend blow 6. Third option is filing draw 5 so it plays F# open, and still bends down to F. Bit of a problem for getting the
big fat G7th chord so heavily used in 2nd.

I found a problem with the standard harp--one of the more important blue
notes, the flatted 1 (F#/Gb in the key of G) is only available on the 2nd
draw. I can't figure out how to play it an octave up. That note is used all
the time on piano and guitar.
