The Major Diatonic harmonica is the most commonly used tuning for playing Blues, Rock, Country Folk & Jazz.
Lee Oskar is the world's best selling harmonica played by all the celebrities from Mick Jagger to Van Morrison.
The major diatonic tuning is the "standard" Richter tuning used by all harmonica makers. It is one of the most versatile tunings in use. Originally arranged for playing popular two-chord German folk melodies and dance tunes, its uses have evolved over the years. Due to an accident of physics, certain notes can be bent or lowered in pitch, making this little instrument a major player in the sound of blues, jazz, country and rock.
