Oh and to answer the overblow jargon… and I quote…

An overblow is a blow note played on the first 6 holes of a diatonic harmonica using a technique that causes the blowreed to stop sounding while the drawreed produces a note.

The note that is produced is one semitone above the pitch of the drawreed.

I can only do the 6 overblow, but it’s a useful note to have if you can do it, I tend not to use it improvising yet though.
