What harmonica keys should I buy?

I and my family will be going to the US next week and I’m planning to buy 2-3 harmonicas. I already have a Suzuki Bluesmaster in C. I would like to play some classic blues harp songs by Sonny Boy Williamson, Little Walter, Big Walter Horton, Greg Taylor, etc. Please give me a list of recommended keys in order of priority. Thanks! :)

    In order:

    -C
    -A
    -D
    -G

    -Bb

    Most blues players play Blues in the key of G,E,A,D and C.

    If you can already get single notes and bend slightly. I can get you playing some Big Walter, Little Walter and Junior Wells pretty fast. Email me with some songs you want to learn at test.dewar.1896@gmail.com

    imo most popular and blues-ish harmonica key chooses are C and G keys, though A, D and E are also good. sometimes you just need to try out some keys to understand that you like it or not, so if you can do it before buying. anecdote: first time when I got my C-minor harmonica I couldn’t find any use to it.. but sometime later in another stubborn try to like it I actually did and dug in that key accidentally. but firstly (I was used to my C key harmonica) I just tried to play it and found it kinda awful (even considering that it’s Hohner Marine Band harmonica)

    Hey, have a great trip!

    BTW, the FlashHarp harmonica USB is handmade in the U.S. with custom-engineered parts manufactured right in the Land of Lincoln (FlashHarp’s flash-memory and musical workings are supplied by market leaders both with strong presences in the U.S., too).

    2, 4 and 8GB models are available in the key of C (“the people’s key”); those start at under $45 each. An 8GB model is also available in “G”.

    For some folks, they make more sense than harmonicas that just make music. Learn why at the blog post below.

    Bon voyage!

    Don’t waste your money on a flash drive with a cheap harmonica (thumbs down).
