      Lee Oskar Natural Minor

      Natural Minor

      Natural Minor harps have a very bluesy soulful sound that's perfect for playing MINOR Blues Rock Country Reggae Pop & Jazz.

      This fabulous tuning is set up to play MINOR MUSIC easily without straining the lips the lungs or the mind! All of the notes and chords that were missing on the Major Diatonic for playing minor blues are right there on the Natural Minor.

      Natural Minors are designed to be played in 2nd Position (cross harp) not 1st Position (straight harp).

      In 2nd Position many of the draw notes can be bent and this allows for a much more expressive fluid style of playing. 2nd Position is a very popular style used by most players for today's music.

      Model: 1910N - Green Label

      Available in 12 Keys (Listed low to high):
      Dm Ebm Em Fm F#m Gm Abm Am Bbm Bm Cm Dbm

      Comparision:

      To make a Gm Natural Minor

      We started with a C Major Diatonic
      (which plays in G in 2nd position).

      We flatted 5 reeds to make it into a minor tuned harmonica. (Shown in yellow below)

      Then we labeled it in the 2nd Position key Gm.

      This tuning is designed to be played in 2nd Position (on the draw).

      Notice how the available bends have changed.

      Natural Minors are key-labeled in 2nd Position.

      This makes it easy to know which key of Natural Minor
      to use.

      To play Minor Music in the key of G minor in 2nd Position use a Gm Natural Minor Harmonica.

      It's that simple! Gm for Gm.

      Great harps
      Not as good as I remembered

      I recently tried the Polar and really find it easier to play and louder than the Lee Oskar. A bit disappointing.
