Natural Minor harps have a very bluesy, soulful sound that's perfect for playing MINOR Blues, Rock, Country, Reggae, Pop & Jazz.

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 cross harp (draw), not straight harp (blow).

In cross harp, many of the draw notes can be bent and this allows for a much more expressive, fluid style of playing. Cross harp is a very popular style used by most players for today's music.

Major Diatonic - C

Natural Minor - Gm

 

Key label in Straight Harp
(1st position).


 

Major Diatonics lack the flatted notes used to play MINOR music.

 

Key label in Cross Harp
(2nd position).


 

Natural Minors provide five flatted notes for playing MINOR music.

SAME HARP, SAME LAYOUT! WITH FIVE ALTERED NOTES.

The five circled notes above indicate which notes have been altered.

C Major Diatonic plays in G

...in cross harp.

Major Diatonics are key-labeled
in straight harp. However,
WHEN PLAYED IN CROSS HARP,
THE KEY OF THE HARP
IS NOT THE SAME AS THE KEY
OF MUSIC
. Helpful key selection charts
are packed inside every Lee Oskar Harp.

 

Gm Natural Minor plays in G

...in cross harp.

Natural Minors are key-labeled
in cross harp. This makes it easy
to know which key of Natural Minor
to use. To play MINOR MUSIC in the key
of G minor, IN CROSS HARP, use
a Gm Natural Minor.
It's that simple! Gm for Gm.
