I recently brought a new harmonica (diatonic) and its in the key of A. I tried looking around the internet for a page that displayed what the notes are, but I couldn't find any. If you have any references or knowledge of what or where I can find the notes of an A Diatonic Harmonica please share.


Thank You

i'm going to assume A major.

in which case.

A B C# D E F# G# A


edit: just so you know "diatonic" just means 7 notes in a scale.

I don't know much about the harmonica, but from what I understand, you have easy access to the notes of the harmonica's key (A major in your case, so A B C# D E F# G#), but can slide a mechanism or do something with your tongue to gain access to the other five tones.

Blow notes:
A C# E  A C# E  A  C# E A

Draw notes:
B E  G# B D  F# G# B  D F#
On a diatonic, you can do bends to get some of the others, and overblows and overdraws for the rest. I recommend you learn how to handle regular bends before you tackle the latter though.
