I play in a weird tuning which I think may be open A flat to suit my voice.
My A harp works when I play blues starting at the third fret.
But I cant find a harp to work when I play starting from open position (open A flat I'm guessing?)
(basically it's open type D configuration of notes, but up a few semi tones etc)
So logically if an A harp works…Continue

Where is middle C on an open tuned 4 string CBG on the chart below?
So where do the high notes occur on a music score then or are the duplicates ?

After many failed attemps at fretting I am planning to try again and after some help.

4) Could I be using incorrect strings and will that make a huge difference?
What is the trick to making these work and play well?

Here are some tips that I do
1) Pick a song and learn it, doesn't need to be difficult
2) Personalise it by slight changes or the way you do the melody
3) Negative space is just as important as positive space, stops, rhythms, breaks etc....ie not one big thrash of mush

I recently bought a new harp and its a G minor as I have heard minor scale can sound great
It says its in the second position tuning.
Can anyone advise me how that works and what chords or notes I can play to it on my CBG
as I normally play in open D,AEA or G..
Does anyone know what are the minor chords for 3 and 4 string CBG?
Your help is appreciated
