How to play sharps and flats on a harmonica?

Hi, can anyone tell me the way to play a sharp on a C major harmonica?
For instance, C sharp?
Can we actually play sharps on harmonica? Or is it that we can only achieve them on harmonicas of different keys?
Thanks!!!

Yes and no. You can bend notes on a harmonica. You can do that on any instrument. It's called "playing a 1/2 step out of tune". On the harmonica some are easier to bend than others. Some are nearly impossible.

Reality is though that you're not playing a C# when you bend down a D - you're playing a D very out of tune so that it sounds (we hope) like a Db. For wailing the blues it works just fine because the timbre of blues is suitable to that style. For playing most things (and definitely for playing with other instruments) it doesn't work so hot.

This is why there are diatonics in all of the keys and why there's such a thing as a chromatic. As much as many harmonica players want to say "look, harmonicas can be bent and twisted just fine" - reality is that if it were completely true then the C diatonic would be the only harp anyone needs. These same players like to point to "this guy whose cousins friend's sister can bend every note", you don't often see too many willing to say "sure! let me show you." themselves. Even fewer are willing to let you put them on a tuner.

The very best way to play a C# on your C harmonica is to stack an A harp on top of it and pull the C# from the third of A. A much more accurate technique than trying to bend down the 1, 4, or 8 draw (D) to get a Db. The other really easy way is to simply hit the lever on a chromatic while playing a C.

http://www.harpsurgery.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/c-harp-diagram.gif is a cool chart for you though if you'd like to try your hand at bending a whole chromatic scale. It's much easier (and better in tune) to simply stack an A harp over your C or to play on a chromatic.

Add: you do know that with an A harp you can play a C#, F#, and G# as easily as playing C F and G on a C harp? The A scale is A B C# D E F# G# A. A D harp gives you a C# too - D E F# G A B C# D.
