Hello and welcome to this week’s harmonica lesson where I will show you how to play the classic folk tune St James Infirmary in 3rd position on a C harmonica. I have taken Hakan Ehn’s version of the song for inspiration which you can watch here.
This tune is played in 3rd position on a C harmonica which means that we are playing in the key of D. The song is a minor song so we are playing in D minor.
