Third Position

Third position is when the one draw hole is the root note, so for example if you’re playing a C harp in 3rd position you’d be in the key of D. A great position for minor blues and lends it’s self to octave style playing.

      Great question thanks! I’ve just updated the ‘Keys & Positions’ page which I hope will now make clear how keys and positions are related on harmonica. Let me know if any more questions. Cheers, Will.
