Unless your harmonicas are badly out of tune, it will work with all
<;"count up four to play cross harp">;
I wonder if this might be the problem??? You can't just "add 4", because
there are non-whole tone intervals involved. You'll either end up with some
keys being off, or if you're "counting up four frets" on the guitar, you'll
be completely off. The "rules" for guitar to cross-harp is:
What harp do I use for this key= up 5 frets
What key will this harp cross to= up 7 frets.
It should be 5 frets to determine cross harp keys - in other words, if the
guitarist is playing in G, he would count five frets up, giving a C, and
this will be the harmonica you want to use. If you want to know what key a
harp will play in when you "cross harp" it, have the guitarist play the note
7 frets up, i.e. G + 7 frets = D (G harp plays D in cross-harp mode).
Does your chart look like this one?
Hope this helps.
