Well on a C harp all the notes you blow are simply the tonic major triad: CEG. No matter where you blow you get this either in root position or its inversions EGC or GCE.
Or, to put it another way, the notes you blow are all the notes that make a chord that harmonises with the note C.
So when you blow just remember C E G.
: Not really. It's called the Richter tuning and it's oddness is what makes 2nd position (cross harp) possible. After you've lived with it long enough, it makes perfect sense.
: : I've looked at the note diagrams many times, regardless of key, and am trying to figure out an easy way to memorize the names of every note, but there doesn't seem to be any freakin' pattern at all!!?? Or is there?
