dumb question but just wanna make sure i am using it right and not damaging it (complete beginner btw), do i squeeze the two plates open and rest it onto the little support rack thing?

also, can you suggest some good song to play with my C key harmonica.

thanks a lot.
Yep, you're doing it properly by the sounds of it.

Bob Dylan has millions of songs that will work, Blowin' In The Wind is an easy one, it's originally in D but all you need to do is notch the capo down 2 frets.

Enjoy occasionally controversial ramblings related to guitars? I have a blog which meets these criteria.
