And why not play it on a C harp? If your 3" sounds go enough, this should fit the bill, shouldn't it?

My two cents 😊

Hi Ian,

For A-minor I would play 3rd position in G.  An easy way to to think of it, that seems to work for me, is double-cross keying - if a song is in A-major, the cross key is 2nd position in D (A to D). If the song is in A-minor, then just cross key again (D to G) and play in 3rd position. ...or just use an A-minor tuned harp.  :)

I hope this helps!

Just Keep on Harpin!
