That's a real complicated question deserving of a complicated answer. You are best off using the links page of this site and visiting Harp-L. Those guys love questions like yours. Not blowing you off, this just isn't the best forum for that kind of question.

Good luck,

: 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?
