If you know the notes on a C Harp, thats a good start. Blow single notes and find what fits. I play guitar so I can watch cords and tell. You will reach a point when the sound will tell you. Another good thing to keep in mind, most songs, but not all with Horns use F or Bb. If you follow certain Blues Singers they tend to favor certain keys for vocals. At home I just grab an acoustic guitar and run my finger up the High E string till it sounds right. Hope theres some useful ideas in this ......Best of Luck .....bluz..
