RE: [Harp-L] Stevie Wonder Fragile Which Chromo?

Thanks Ken. I realize now that I got the key wrong (brain bubble). I have read somewhere that SW's favorite chrom is the Super 64 key of C. Thanks for the confirmation on that.Regards,Buck

Buck... I don't know much about chromatic... for me its very hard to figure out what key chromatic someone is playing.

So I just try to figure out what key the song is in by using my diatonic major and minor harps.

My Ab harp sounded just right, playing it in 4th position, so the song is in F minor... and it sound right on my Lee Oskar Fnm harp too.

Stevie is probably playing a Super 64 Key of C.

I'm trying to learn more about playing chromatic and I love Stevie Wonder's style. Where can I find more info regarding his playing and particularly what harmonica's he uses.

Thus far the only time I use my chromatic is for blues in dorian mode, either playing in minor or minor over the major.

This one (Fragile) seems to be in F# minor. What is he using and which key is the instrument in?

I have 2 chromatic harmonicas. Both are Hohners. A CBH 2016 in C and a Super Chromonica 270 in G

Thanks in advance,
