Song: BLUES SCALE in 12 POSITIONS
The notes below are for a harp in the key of C, but the tab holds for
any key harmonica (e.g., if you pick up a Bb harp and play the same
1st position tab below, the actual notes will be different but the
position will be correct). 2nd position is what you hear most often in
blues, but dont be afraid to mix it up.

+ = blow
- = draw
 = halfstep bend (diatonic only)
 = whole step bend (diatonic only)
 = whole step and a half bend (diatonic only)
o = overblow/overdraw (diatonic only)
< = push slide button in (for chromatic tab only)
