Praise God!
I've not only discovered what I'm doing wrong, but I've been able to correct it! I have been having trouble playing sharp (1/4 to 1/2 step higher) on the high notes on my Warmstone G. The great advise of Ubizmo and Kypfer have really helped. I am a vocalist, a 1st soprano, and I've been really over blowing, yet when I blew softly, the notes didn't sound good (kind of indistinct) I've now learned, thru working with my keyboard, for pitch, just how hard to blow- and my notes are much clearer. When you sing a high C (C-3) up to a high G (G-3) you use a tremendous amount of air- but NOT ON THE MO!  Roll Eyes
Anyway, thanks for listening to my jubilation!  Grin

I am glad that you were able to work out the problem.  I played a few times with a tuner and that made a big difference to my playing.  It's all about muscle memory and breath control. Practice with another instrument or with a tuner is a good way to help you develop the memory with the correct pitch.  I was blowing too hard at first as well because a harmonica take more wind and pressure than the MO.
