Have you ever found that playing a tune in one key is enjoyable and you look forward to playing it, but when played in another key it is almost annoying and even labor some to get through? I love maids of mitchelstown in G, however when I play in D —-uggh. What a drastic difference, it makes in my mood even,,,just an observation

My experience too.
Maybe that is the reason why there are different modes.

with alternative tuning the options increase and also a blend of tunes makes the music more attractive. Sometimes i like to play monotonic music through my own harmonica but that is a different thing.
