In Reply to: Dave Matthews - Watchtower - Key??? posted by Nick Gibson on April 12, 2002 at 19:41:11:
i saw that G was recommended, 3rd position.........however, dylans original version is the same 3 chords, Am, G, F, though he capoes the 4th fret, making the song in c#m with an e harp in the 4th position........this would make the uncapoed chords, like dave's, call for a c harp (4th position........thats how i play a bob-esque watchtower uncapoed, though maybe daves diffent tempo changes the harp, im not sure
: Howdy ... I'm new to the harp scene. My dad has played a long time and so i'm trying to pick it up. My problem is that the Dave Matthews version of All Along the Watchtower is in the Key of Am (I think) I solo in Am when i play it on the guitar. So i have a few questions.
: 1. Do they make harps in Minor Keys? (like Am)
: 2. If not, this also could be in the key of C as Am is the relative minor of C and F and G are in the key of C ... but i don't think it is. I've tried playing along with my C Harp ... but it doesn't sound quite right ... can someone help???? Leave a post on here or email me at ShawneeNDN@aol.com
