BC and Bill-
Actually when Carlos says 12th position, he does mean 12th position (that harmonica players refer to). It would be the key of F on a C harp. Go up the circle of 5ths from C twelve times and you get the key of F. Definitely not the same as 3rd postion, that would be the key of Dm on a C harp. F and Dm are similar, in fact, they are relative major and minor, but they are not the same.
: When Carlos refers to 12th position he is not refering to positions that harp players refer to ie: 1st 2nd 3rd etc. He is refering to music theory cycle of 5ths since I am not musically trained and have the learned my music by ear I am no expert on this. I think 12th in cycle of 5 is equivalent of 3rd position, but don't quote me on this. What you should do is ask Carlos, if you go to http://wwwcarlosdeljunc/cbi.html you will find an email link to Carlos. : I heard a beautiful song by Carlos Del Junco called Marjorie, from his "Big Boy" CD... He plays in 12th or 1st flat position... I know 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th, but can someone help me know 12th?
