: I am brand new to the harp, I bought 2 harps , the Hohner bluesband in "c"(paid 5 bucks for it in a music store and a Hohner bluesharp in "g" (paid 20 bucks) before I found this site. Should I use em or chuck em. The 3 hole on the 20 dollar harp sounds crappy when I draw on it.
Use 'em. There are better harps than those, but they'll do. It would be a shame to waste money by throwing them away. I have a Blues Band, and, though it is a cheapo and not as good as my other harps, I still use it. (I have Lee Oscars, Special 20s, a Marine Band, an old Mano Folk Blues and a 12 hole Marine Band.)
The problem you are experiencing with hole 3 is very common. Most people have trouble with holes 2 and 3 draw when they first start out. These are inherently sensitive holes, since they can bend more than the other holes. Keep practising, and you will improve eventually.
