Re: [Harp-L] what position/tuning to play this song

can I get maj6/min6 in 3rd position without special tuning?  E.G. like you
can get maj/minor 3rd in 2nd position?

(I'm not as proficient in 3rd as I am 2nd maj/minor...and I could certainly
figure this out on my own with a position chart compared to the scale...but
I'm at work and many of you know off the top of your head)
