What key should I get my harmonica in?
First get a harmonica in C. C is the best key to get started because the length of the reeds is average and it’s also the most common key in music. Out of the 12 keys, a harmonica in G has the longest reeds and a harmonica in F# has the shortest reeds.
Now that you know what keys to start with, you need to figure out how to play them. A scale is a series of notes that can be played in any order. For example, if you want to learn the C major scale you can start by playing the notes C, D, E, F, G, A, B, and C#.
You can then move on to the other notes by moving up and down the scale until you reach the note you’re looking for. This is called a “scale” and you’ll learn more about scales later in this lesson.
