RE: [Harp-L] Sharps and Flats?

Learn some basic theory for sure. C of 5ths is a good start and you will get a lot of replies from some great teachers on the harpl site.
To help you get started do these things:
Never say B#. In 'theory' B# is the same as C
1st position is where the song key and the harp key are the same.
An easy way to find the right harp for 2nd pos is this: Example: Song is in key of C. Let's say C = 1, then count up 4. C D E F. F = 4. Use an F harp for key of C.
Go for it. BW

> I have been playing with someone how likes to play in sharp keys. B#, what I can gather is that on the Circle of Fifths you go 5 keys to the left or counter clock wise and you are at the key you want C Major, C# is Db, is that First Position? I am looking on the internet and it's all Guitar and Piano. How does this work With a Harps. I am slowly learning theory but I get overloaded and have to go at my own pace. Thanks in Advance Eric S.
