Re: "Extra High Octane" blues tuning for 13-hole harp

A slight twist on this would be to have the four draw be a G4 (i.e. an enharmonic of the three blow) instead of an F4 . This would make runs up and down the G blues scale much faster and easier. That would wreck its role as a b7th for the inverted Gmaj; however, there is already a G7 farther up the ...

ADDENDUM #2:
The draw note of that added channel 4 (see ADDENDUM #1) should be an F. This would make the b7th of the Gmaj of 1-3 draw.

Re: "High Octane" blues tuning for 12-hole harp

ADDENDUM #1: If a new chamber/hole were inserted between the existing channels 3 and 4, then the new channel 4 blow tone could be a Bb. This would give the Cmaj chord of channels 1-3 a b7th, and therefore ALL chords of the I-IV-V progression could be played as 7th chords. Pretty cool. This would ma...

Re: "High Octane" blues tuning for 12-hole harp

One day later, I believe this to be an improvement. Note that we now have a second Gmaj chord and its b7th.
