Product Information

Natural Minor harmonicas are designed to be played in the cross harp position. Lee Oskar Natural Minor harmonicas are labeled in their cross harp key - so if you're playing a song in A minor, you will need a Lee Oskar harmonica in A minor.
Natural Minor harps have a very bluesy, soulful sound that's perfect for playing MINOR Blues, Rock, Country, Reggae, Pop & Jazz.
This is not a standard tuned diatonic and it is not what we recommend for beginners. This is a special purpose harmonica. The "Natural Minor" tuned diatonic is made specifically to be played in the 2nd position and is used for songs in minor keys. It's a little confusing, but the key of the harmonica is the key for the 2nd position playing. Typically, the key of the harmonica is the same as the 1st position playing, but not in this case (same as the "Melody Maker" listed below). The most common minor key used in music is "A" minor. This is most likely the key you would want to buy first. After that, if there is a specific song you want to play to, buy that Natural Minor keyed harmonica. Remember to play in the 2nd position.
This fabulous tuning is set up to play MINOR MUSIC easily, without straining the lips, the lungs or the mind! All of the notes and chords that were missing on the Major Diatonic, for playing minor blues, are right there on the Natural Minor.
Natural Minors are designed to be played in 2nd Position (cross harp), not 1st Position (straight harp).
In 2nd Position, many of the draw notes can be bent and this allows for a much more expressive, fluid style of playing. 2nd Position is a very popular style used by most players for today's music.
Model: 1910N - Green Label
To make a Gm Natural Minor, we started with a C Major Diatonic (which plays in G in 2nd Position).
We flatted 5 reeds to make it into a minor tuned harmonica. (Shown in green below)
Then we labeled it in the 2nd Position key, Gm.
This tuning is designed to be played in 2nd Position (on the draw).
Notice how the available bends have changed.
Major Diatonic
Example: Key of C
Labeled in the 1st Position Key (shown in orange as #1 Blow)
Natural Minors are key-labeled in 2nd Position.
This makes it easy to know which key of Natural Minor to use.
To play Minor music in the key of G minor, in 2nd Position, use a Gm Natural Minor harmonica. It’s that simple! Gm for Gm.
Natural Minors provide five flatted notes for playing Minor music.
