Is there any convention for writing music for harp?
On a C harmonica there are three octaves, but in practice the notes most used are those around draw 3.
We could use two staves as in piano or place everything in the treble with leger lines after 6 draw, but this might not be convenient in other keys.
I would favour a single stave, perhaps with 8va ...| mark on 1st position.
Also is there any convention for tablature. Numbers below the stave with arrows? Or assumed draw and mark blow?
