Harmonica Bb

Question about harmonicas?

I want to play the harmonica to a song thats in D minor. What key harmonica should i get?

If you want to play in straight harp (1st position) then you get a D minor harmonica.

Bb is close - but not correct. The key of D minor has a Bb in it but the key of Bb major has two flats, F major has one flat (Bb).

D minor (natural minor) is D E F G A Bb C D

I is D, IV is G, and V is A -- this is where playing usual blues method in a minor mode presents a problem. You have to learn specific techniques for playing a minor mode on a major mode harp unless you're only playing a melody line.

Second position on a G harp is D major and has an F# and no Bb in it. A player that can bend the F# to F and the B to Bb could certainly use a G harp in crossharp but it'll be a challenge because the draw chord on a G harp has that F# in the middle of it.

We play d minor (natural minor) in 4th position on an F harmonica. We play d minor (dorian mode) in 3rd position of a C harmonica.

The easiest way to do it is to get a natural minor harp such as those from Lee Oskar.
