Hi guys. I’ve been playing harmonica for about a month now and I play in first position, straight harp, simple melodies such as Happy Birthday, She’ll be coming round the mountain, You are my sunshine, etc…
I have a C harp and a G harp. I find the G much easier to play, particularly on the top 3 holes. And I like the deeper sound. Yet I keep reading that the C is the better harp to learn on?
I get that if you’re playing bluesy cross harp then a C might be better, or if you’re playing with a band, you need a certain key, but if I’m just enjoying playing melodies at home, does it really matter?
Should I keep persevering with the C? Or simply enjoy playing the G?
Am I overthinking it?
