A Frequently Asked Question: What Key Should I choose?

This question comes up almost every day. The easy answer is this.

For beginners, most books will use the key of C. We recommend that you stay with a C until you are ready to move on.

For Playing The Blues: Many blues harmonica songs will be played in the 'second position', where the harmonica key is different to the key of the song. For these songs, you will need a harmonica that is a FOURTH above the song key. For example, a blues song in G would use a C harp.

Here is a list of the keys for blues players.

A > D
Bb > Eb

C# > F#
