: Just a quick stupid question. On a C harmonica, the cross position notes for G blues would include 2 draw, 3 draw/bend, 4 blow/draw/ 6 blow etc. If I was to play 2nd position on another keyed harmonica, would I use the same notes/holes?
Same holes. The notes would be different. 2nd position refers to the holes that you play not the notes. Positions follow the circle of fifths.3rd postion on a C harp would give yo a D minor scale.2nd position on a G harp will give you a D scale. 3rd on a G will give you an A minor scale. 2nd on a D harp will give you an A scale. 3rd on a D harp will be an Eminor. Some brands of harps are labled in 1st and 2nd position.
