The Go-To Mouth Organ For Minor Playing
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.
Second Position Playing
Natural Minors are designed to be played in 2nd Position (cross harp), not 1st Position (straight harp).
In 2nd Position, many of the draw notes can be bent and this allows for a much more expressive, fluid style of playing. 2nd Position is a very popular style used by most players for today's music.

About Lee Oskar and his Harmonicas
There's no one in the pop music world quite like Lee Oskar. His unique role as a founding member and former lead harmonica player for the pioneer funk/jazz group, WAR, won him international renown for over two and a half decades (1969-1993).
Oskar's signature harp solos helped to define the WAR sound from the band's beginning in 1969, adding dashes of color to their R&B/Jazz/Rock and Latin influences. Oskar's position with WAR was a prominent one from their early days with singer Eric Burdon onwards. Audiences have marvelled at his improvisational wizardry, not to mention his animated stage presence.
