On this song, which harmonicas do I play? When do I change my approach?

The intro is a low F in 2nd
@ 1:00 Bb in 3rd
You're back to low F at the end.

too easy. Song is in C, that first notes are classic 2d position (low F) and then is 3d position, ergo Bb harp.

Good song!
Sorry for any misspell, english is not my first language.

Thanks for listening!

Maybe I'm wrong, as I recorded this a few months back, but I remembered playing a 3rd harp on this. The Bb, the low F, and a C.

(Maybe the notes and movements are not distinctive enough to be picked up on easily? Maybe it can all be achieved on just the two harps?)
