Oliver Mtukudzi's Ndakuvara:
Retune your Alto to A minor

In this Wednesday tips series, we are learning how to play Ndakuvara.

Assuming you don't absolutely need to play along, the easy thing to do is to retune your ALTO kalimba, originally in G, to A minor (or C major). This involves changing the two F# tines to F natural.

This music is played on a Celeste Alto Kalimba which is available at the Kalimba Magic Shop.
