    Hi Max,

    That’s a hard one, as there is no standard key for each song. Many different artists do these songs in many different keys.

    You can play these tunes on any diatonic harmonica, with the right guidance. There are many tabs for these songs on the internet too. Though I can’t vouch for their accuracy all the time 🙂

    Why do you ask? and… Do you read sheet music at all?

    I have a question

    No, I don’t read music. The reason I asked was that whereas a guitar has all keys on the instrument a harmonica can only be played in one key.
