I wish I could help ya' bigcat. I bought a "country tuned" SP20 a coupla years ago and fiddled around with it for a while, and now it's a paperweight on my piano at home. It seems to me that at the time I bought it I googled around for the scales of the different tunings and discovered a list of 'em on some Australian or Brazilian harper's website who plays with Symphonic orchestras all over the world. This guy tunes his own harps to the scales he wants. That's the only clue I got, as obscure as it is. Maybe Hohner lists the tunings on their site.

I've got a tab for the country scale at Modern Blues Harmonica:

"Country Scale": The Grand Ol' Opry counterpart to the blues scale. This should be part of every blues harmonica player's armory, since you never know when the band will throw you a curveball. Charlie McCoy, Jimmy Fadden, and Mickey Raphael know all about this country scale.

Harp: C

Just take the major pentatonic and add the minor third to it.
