I just bought a harmonica with holder in Bb and am trying to find a good song to play with it.
Can anyone help???
Also in the keys of G and/or C if you really wanna be a superhero to me?

Many thanks

Knocking on Heavens Door is in G, well, Gb but that's coz of the guitar tuning, so play it in standard tuning and you're sorted.
Believer by The Monkees is in G.
Can't think of any more off the top of my head though.
Maybe transpose a few songs into the keys you want them in? It isn't hard.

Well, seeing as you just bought your harp, you'd probably be playing in straight harp? Just find songs in Bb.

ATM I can't think of any songs in Bb, but they'll come.

Alot of pop songs are either in C or G.
Damnit by Blink is in C.
You could play a C straight harp over symphony of destruction by Megadeth.
A G harp in straight harp would work over Tenacious D's Dio.

Mind giving me some

what do you mean by straight harp? I'm not bending or any blues stuff like that coz im wearing a massive bear trap round my head. I'm just playing various notes and chords over my guitar.

the key of the harp implies the major scale. so a Bb harmonica implies Bb major, which means songs in G minor would also fit well over it.

Straight harp=Mostly blow notes, no bending, good for folk guys
Cross harp=Mostly draw notes, alot of bending, good for blues guys

Than you've got those guys that play overblows and overdraws and can use one standard diatonic to play in all 12 keys.

^ a G and C harp should be just that. a harmonica for G major and one for C major. they also work well playing melody with the relative minors (E minor and A minor respectively)
