What I wanna do right now is
take a little digression, and
play a blues in third position along
with the backing track
that I have that's in G.
So we're gonna start thinking
a little bit differently now.
Now we're gonna have to start thinking
about different keys of harmonicas.
Because to play in third position in G,
it takes a little bit of thought.
What we have to do here is think,
okay,third position in C is D minor.
It's D, Dorian.
D is the second note of the C scale.
If your on C harmonica,
D is the second note.
[SOUND] First hole draw.
So now if we wanna play in G.
G third position.
G is the second note of the F scale.
So now I'm gonna introduce
you to the F harmonica,
which is the highest
standard pitched harmonica.
And, I'll play a little blues in G,
third position, on an F harp.
And, I'm gonna play it along with my
backing track, the slow blues in G.
