: i just learned how to play the 3rd position blues scale off of this site, this looks pretty interesting. i havnt gotten to use it in a live playing situation, but do any of yall ever use it? or does it not allow as cool of licks? peace, jason
3rd position is great! You're able to get all the notes of a blues scale, plus some great bends. Like the other positions on the diatonic, the more you play with it the more you'll like it. On my humble web page for the harmonica, there's a lesson called "the pervasive pentatonic" which gives a simple overview of some different positions for playing the blues. It's FREE! #3 & #5 are 3rd position oreinted.
Enjoy, Bill (the capital H in the web address is important.)
