Assume the Position!

Harp books list positions 1 through 5 then 12. So,what happened to the 7 missing positions?

Not sure I think there available but so rarely used ??? ???

Somebody’s got a better explanation I’m sure.

Harp on!!

Yeah, Joe’s right. They are not mentioned because they are very rarely used. You should be able to overblow and overdraw to explore all 12 positions on a harmonica.

Look up Otavio Castro. He uses a single C harmonica to play in all 12 keys!

Here’s a montage clip of Otavio playing and pics:
