[Harp-L] Jazz crossover tunes

Steve, I don't understand. In 12th position (key of F on a C harp),
starting on draw 6 (the note A, which is the correct starting note in the
key of F), the second note (Bb) is an overblow. So how do you play it in
12th position in the second octave without overblows?
Given that this tune lays out so well in 2nd position, I'm not sure why
it's necessary to try it in any other. Unless you want the practice, of
Regards, Richard Hunter
