What key of harmonica should I buy?

I love hearing sad harmonica music played solo, I feel so relaxed when I hear this instrument... So which key of harmonica should I buy?
I haven't played the harmonica before so I'm a beginner..
Should I start with C key or is there a better harmonica key for sad music?

Most folks who want to learn harmonica start with a 10-hole diatonic (aka "blues harp") in C. We pick C because 1) it's easy to learn on with no sharps or flats 2) most tutorials and lessons are written for C harmonica 3) it's a middle-range harmonica so neither "too low" or "too high" for musical tastes 4) it's a key that comes up A LOT when playing music 5) many lower priced harmonicas only come in C. [note: more holes does NOT equal "better" - it equals different. Those double rowed or chromatic harmonicas are for different sorts of music.]

The key of the music doesn't determine the mood of the music - the mode of the scale does that. You can play a "sad song" on any key harmonica.

If you can, buy a decent quality harmonica to start out on and you'll progress much faster. "Decent quality" is the likes of Hohner Marine Band, Hohner Special 20, Hohner Blues Harp; Lee Oskar Major Diatonic, Suzuki BluesMaster, and should cost you between $30-50 depending on where you get it.

Those $5 harmonicas like the Hohner BluesBand will work for simple tunes like O' Susannah but won't tolerate much blues style playing - blues style is probably what you're referring to when you say "sad harmonica music played solo" -- it's the "blues" notes that make it sad and "blue" ♪♫
