Here we go – I’m playing guitar with harmonica on the traditional Irish tune Mist On the Mountain – I’m playing guitar in Dropped D tuning and playing a G harmonica with it.
Mist On the Mountain is in the key of A minor, so with a G harmonica that means I’m playing in 3rd position harmonica – third position is the harmonica position most often used when the song is in a minor key.
Mist On the Mountain is fairly fast paced and honestly I’ve heard it played a lot faster than what I’m playing here, just not as guitar and harmonica together. I like the A minor chord up at the 5th fret and how you can alternate between that and the standard A minor chord down at the first two frets.
What do you think?
