@josher33 You might be happiest just to pick up Natural Minor harmonicas in those keys if you can afford it!

Em is A, Am is D, Gm is C, second position is a fourth from the root, the root is the key, like Em, minor is a flatted third, major is a third, E the third is Eflat (D# enharmonic) and the fifth is B, in minor chord Em, root, flatted third is D and fifth remains B.

G, Aflat (G#), A, Bflat (A#), B (Cflat), C (B#), Dflat (C#), D, Eflat (D#), E, F (E#), Gflat (F#) and back to G
