: I'm a little confused. Is playing a C harp in the 2nd position the same as playing a G harp in the first position? If so can I eliminate the need to bend notes by playing a harp in a different key?
No. 1st and 2nd positions are not only in different keys, but are in different modes too. What this means is that there is a whole different set of notes on C harp 2nd pos. than G harp 1st pos., even though they're (roughly) the same key.
