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

I've been working concurrently on 10-, 12- and 13-hole tunings for blues. It has been fascinating to me how progress in any one of these has led to continued progress in the other two. This morning I had a real breakthrough in my 10-hole tuning. Which leads me to this 13-hole Gen 5 .... 2017-11-05 (...

Re: "High Octane" blues tuning for 10-hole harp

Gen 4 takes yet another approach ---putting the V chord in the draw layer.

As far as 10-hole versions go, this (imo) is easily the best so far.
