The Lee Oskar Harmonic Minor, with its five altered notes, is ideal for playing World Music, typically played in 1st Position (Straight Harp).
The Harmonic Minor is a multi-cultural tuning; the harmonic minor scale has a predominantly Eastern European flavour suitable for Yiddish, Gypsy, Greek and Middle Eastern minor key music. The sound produced is pensive and soulful. This harmonica is labelled in the 1st playing position.
Lee Oskar harmonicas are available in four tunings, Major Diatonic, Melody Maker, Natural Minor and Harmonic Minor.
Owning a few keys of altered tunings is like adding new colors of paint to a player’s musical palette.
