Don't Get Around Much Anymore is playable in 12th position without 
overblows. Start on 6 draw.

Starting on draw 7 In second position you have a 4 consecutive overblows on 
hole 5 in measure seven of the bridge.

It plays great in 2nd position starting on 3 draw with on a Lucky 13, a 
Seydel Pro 12, or any SBS-type harp without overblows.

Tom Ball performed a solo harmonica arrangement of this piece a few years
ago at SPAH, and it was delightful--equal parts country blues and swing-era
jazz.  As I recall, Big Walter Horton also recorded a version of this piece
with accompaniment. Either way, it's a can't-miss number for either
diatonic or chromatic harp.
