   Haven't listened to the tune in question for years, but I was always
under the impression it  was in 4th.  It's always puzzled me why blues
players, if they use this position at all, use it only for minor key
stuff.  A lot of my standard 2nd position riffs transcribe over the 4th
nicely.  I use a G diatonic for regular E blues playing all the time.  I
think it's the most unused "practical" diatonic position for blues playing
out there.  Just my opinion.
   Speaking of Charlie Musselwhite, I see he's listed for a "Harmonica
Summit" at the University of Chicago's Logan Center:
Part of the Logan Center Blues Festival, www.loganbluesfest.org.  Matt
Skoller and Billy Branch are the other harpists.  Steve Bell, Carey Bell's
son, is also playing harp at the fest.
