: Yes I am about to perform at this engagement and I am playing a song off of a sound track with my chromatic harmonica in the key of C. The song modulates to the key of D and to E. Now is it unprofessional of me to pick up a D and E harmonica in the song or should I learn to play those keys with my C harmonica? Please advise.
If it's "unprofessional" for a harmonicist to change harmonicas in the middle of a song, then someone should've told Charlie Musselwhite a long time ago!
Concentrate on sound quality and don't make things more difficult then necessary. If you're comfortable with switching harmonicas in the middle of a song, then go for it.
Good luck on your upcoming engagement. I hope that it will be the start of many more.
Wishing you success in your endeavors,
