go to the Scales section of this site and take a look at the country scale.

The most important difference between country and blues playing in 2nd position on a diatonica harp is that in blues you mostly bend the 2 and 4 draw holes, but in country, you primarily bend hole 3 draw.

Good luck,
Bill
(I'm not a big fan of country music, but it is one of the most fun types of music to play harmonica to.)

: I've been playing a few years now and feel comfortable improvising on blues songs. I'd like to expand out, and be able to improvise with a friend who is now playing more country-style music. Any tips for how to approach this/modify what I'm already doing? Is there a country scale like there's a blues scale?
