: Just gotta' new L.O. G harp for a Bday gift. It's my first G so I've never played on one before. There is a difference between a high and low G right? This harp is not as deep as my A, which leads me to the obvious, that's it's a high G. Anyone have any prefference on which they like jamming more with and why? (I like the lower pitch harps myself) I've checked the 'Key'd Songs' pages and find a few Key'd in D for the G harp. So I guess I'm not too bad off.

: Thanx all.

I recently learned that the harmonica scale runs from G thru F#, with G being the lowest. I also checked on the Lee Oskar Major Diatonic, and they do make it in G and high G, so if your new LO is higher pitched than your LO in the key of A, it sounds like you've a high G...also I bought a Hohner Blues Harp in the key of G before I learned all this. It has a fat sound I really like, but so far I have not played it with a band...also got a Special 20 in E before I learned this stuff. It is too high pitched for my taste...Since then I have discovered that the SP20, like some other harps, comes in Low E and some other low keys...hope this helps...eddie
