Major Diatonic Harmonica - The Traditional Blues Tuning
The Major Diatonic Harmonica was originally intended for playing simple Folk music of the nineteenth century and its notation layout was adequate for that purpose. The Major Diatonic harmonica is the most commonly used tuning for playing Blues, Rock, Country Folk & Jazz.

The original style of playing, known as 1st Position (Straight Harp), is suitable for playing simple melodies, Folk music and various other types of music that call for melody lines, along with some chords. 1st Position (Straight Harp), is still used by many players today, but due to its simplicity of sound, it is not as popular as 2nd Position (Cross Harp).

2nd Position (Cross Harp), is a Blues scale that offers a more expressive and soulful sound. Many of the draw reeds can be bent (a technique used to change the pitch of a note).

Good tone and easy to bend. One feature I like is that the harp is a little longer than a special 20. The extra length is to the left of the 1 hole and right of the 10 hole (more solid plastic at the ends). This makes it a little more comfortable to play single notes on those outermost holes. The price is a little cheaper than special 20 at the time of buying and you can also easily get replacement reeds which gives good value over time.
