On the tunes you've listed, here are the song keys and harps and positions being used:

Juke tune is in E, he's using a Marine Band in the key of A, played in 2nd position, which is E.
My Babe same as above
Blues with a Feeling tune is in A, he's using a Marine Band in the key of A, playing in 2nd position, which is A.
Key to the Highway, tune is in G, he's using a Marine Band in the key of C, played in 2nd position, which is G.

The Marine Bands were all tuned to 7 limit just intonation at the time (all the way up to 1985), and presently, the only harps availalbe today tuned this way stock are the Hering 1923 Vintage Harps and the just tuned version of the Suzuki Fabulous.

I'm sure that you harp guys can help me out. I really love blues harmonica and love to try to mimic some of Walter's licks on slide.

If you need songs as a reference:

Juke
My Babe
Blues with a Feeling
Key to the Highway

and damn near the whole 2nd CD - it sounds really really raw and I love it.

etc
