Moon dance is nice in 4th.

I prefer 3rd or 5th for minor blues songs; they have more juicy bends available (unless you are a good overblower).

> Here’s a question!  Which songs sound better played in 4th position rather than 2nd or 3rd?  I’ve recently been asked to play harp on a song called Kampfire Vampire and 4th works best.  Got me wondering what other songs this might apply to.  B
