: Stan: The reason for my confusion may be semantics. You say see chart at bottom of General Overview. That
: chart shows that if the key of the harmonica is C then 2nd position is G. But the answer to my original question was if the song key is C then 2nd position is
: F not G. I just want to be clear in my mind. Thanks!!
To use the chart on the "General Overview" page:
1) Determine the key of the song
2) Look in the column that says "2nd Position" and find the key of the song.
3) Look in the left hand column labeled "key of harmonica". This is the harmonica you need to play in that key.
Everything in this chart is the key of the song, except for the left-hand column, which is the key of the harmonica.
For example, if your song is in C, and you want to play in second position, you need a "F" harmonica.
