HI, “Dr.”: I am brand new to the Kalimba, and have zero musical reading/background. It is a 17 key Kalimba in C. My Kalimba currently is “unpainted”, but I think it will be very helpful to a new student to have those as a reference. I am unsure of what beginner book(s) I should order here….5 painted tines or ??? I am thoroughly confused as to the difference of 5 markings or 6! I had hopes that this would be an easy instrument to learn, but if I am struggling on which music is appropriate for the number of painted tines….then my future musical career is in jeopardy! Thanks for your guidance. Kathie
