[Harp-L] 4th Position

Generally, I've always used 4th Position as straight harp for any tune in a minor key. Best example that comes to mind: Heart of Gold by Neil Young.
But really like what Mr. Rubin wrote about using it when 2nd and 3rd positions become boring.

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
