Like most folks around this site, I am drawn to blues harmonica. HOWEVER, I have discovered the joy of bluegrass as of late. I was inspired by the movie Oh Brother Where Art Thou. This flicks has one of the greatest sound tracks of all time in my opinion. The music is not easily categorized using modern genre but it could be called bluegrass, REAL country, and old timey. Anyway, I bought the sound track and have been jamming cross harp to it. There are three versions of the bluegrass standard "Man of Constant Sorrow" and I can't tell you how much fun they are to play along with. Especially the last version - track 16 if I remember right. The vocal versions are in the key of F (Bb harp) and the instrumental version is in G (C harp). I say buy the sound track and give it a go. If nothing else it sounds like you'll love the music.
