: Does anyone know all the keys of the third position? Especially the third postion from Am. Please let me know.
The 'keys' of the third position? There are no 'keys'. The third position is 2 steps up from the key of the song, as compared to the second position, which is 4 steps up.
For example: song in key of A; harp in second position (cross position) means 4 keys up, or A-B-C-D. harp in third position means 2 keyps up, or A-B-C.
This is also a position popular on chromatic harmonica, because you can play a 'bluesy' sounding accompanyment or solo withOUT using the slide.
You may have meant 'steps' up in your question, rather than 'keys' up.
