Sugar blue

What key / harmonica does sugar blue play on “out till dawn”


Hey @Cldmonet - welcome to the forum my friend. Thank you for turning me onto this amazing song. I love me some Sugar Blues, but hadn’t really been familiar with “Out till Dawn.”

This song is in the key of E, and Sugar Blue is playing the hell out of a D harmonica in 3rd position!

When I was growing up Blues Traveler was big, and Jon Popper’s harmonica playing blew my mind, and I was like, “this guy came out of nowhere!” But now that I’ve learned about Sugar Blue, I’m like, “oh he came from Sugar Blue!”
