Kalimba Techniques
11: High Note Finger Cross Over

David Chau had owned his new kalimba for about a day when he sent me a video of a new technique I had never imagined - a finger cross over.

Last week, we mentioned crossing the thumb over to the other side to play notes you need to play. The higher you go on the kalimba, the harder it is to cross over. This is where David's technique comes in - you can actually cross the right index finger over to a high note on the left side. I find this technique to be absolutely brilliant!
