    Hi, JP
    I’ve got a diatonic harmonica in the key of A, that I really like. But in that key, your tab doesn’t seem to work. Key of C is no problem. My question is: is there ANY way to play summertime on a key of A diatonic harp? I haven’t been able to find the bended notes that will make it work. Very frustrating!
    cheers,
    bev
