Re: [Harp-L] positions you can use on diatonic

Personally, I don't know of any harp players who use all 12 positions on diatonic. All my fellow local harp players pretty much use straight and cross. I've toyed with using 3rd and 4th before, but I've never really ventured outside of the comfort zone either.

Subject: [Harp-L] positions you can use on diatonic

The common rule used to be that there were 6 positions that you could use on the diatonic.

The rest were not exactly useless, just impossible. Then along came Howard Levy, 

Playing 12 positions on one harp, he made the impossible  commonplace.

But still, most people cannot play 12 positions or can they?
