If you want to play the harmonica, you're already on the smart path to becoming a virtuoso by checking out this site. As I've said before, harmonicalessons.com is a goldmine of information for any harmonica player from the beginner who is holding a new harmonica for the first time...to the seasoned pro.
For the beginner, a key of C diatonic is highly recommended.
However, you can learn on a harmonica of a different key. Until you acquire a C harp, just pretend that you have a C harp. Practice the exercises and play the music the way that you would on a C harp. If you get the opportunity to play with another musician, just be sure that you tell him or her that you're playing an E harmonica!
When you get a C harp, you will notice the difference.
Wishing you success in your endeavors,
