Thread Name: How to play the 'Blues Harp'
Subject: RE: How to play the 'Blues Harp'
Here's Sam Hinton with a perfect example of why one would get a natural minor harp rather than playing in fourth position:
The chording is only possible with a natural minor tuning.
He also demonstrates swapping between harps mid-tune, either to change key or to get additional chords. In the first two selections, he uses two harps, in the last, four!
