LOL, might have been a quick question, but it made for lots of answers!
I have been playing Mary Jane in 2nd position on a D harp for many years, since long before I ever knew that it was played in the relative minor of C (4th position) on the record; since long before I ever knew what the relative minor of C (4th position) was or meant.
It's a lot more fun in D. Third position (G) can be thrown in, but for this tune I have found that it's simply a lot more fun to just play it w/ your D harp!
