Thread Name: Harmonica keys available in early days
Subject: RE: Harmonica keys available in early days
The Beatles were quickly told to lose the harmonica by Epstein or Martin, so it sadly rarely featured after that. But yes I think they were available in all 12 keys here in UK from certainly the 70s, but some music shops only stocked them in C and G, not much use for blues players of course. Later on, you could get ones in minor keys, harmonic minor and natural minor, but from the Far East. Chromatic harmonicas were Wilde available of course.
