I’ve been trying out a new toy: a Lee Oskar Natural Minor in G. I like it a lot. Adding one of these harps to your kit gives you some of the versatility of a chromatic harp, but in a blues harp friendly package. To test it out I dialled up a minor blues playalong in G on YouTube. Because Gm is the 2nd position key, you just pick the matching key and get playing in 2nd position. Simples! And of course you get all the expression you are used to from playing blues on a major diatonic harp. Minor blues sounds great, tunes in minor keys sound great. It’s a nice alternative tuning!
