Are you a beginning kalimba player who wants to learn some Christmas Carols for their 17-Note Hugh Tracey Treble kalimba in G, with a low note of B? Perhaps you have owned a Treble kalimba for years, and have never really explored it? Or perhaps you’ve been playing for years, and now is the right time to really dig in and learn some songs? If you look like one of those people, this is the download for you.
This is an instructional download (a PDF, not a hard copy book), If you have a 17-Note Kalimba in C, see the 17-Note Kalimba in C Resource Page.
There are 32 carols in this collection, but four of them are repeats at different levels of difficulty, making 28 different unique carols. Most of the songs are “Level 1” and “Level 2,” meaning you should be ready to play them today, or in about a week of playing. Several other songs are “Level 3” (includes three note chords) and a few are “Level 4” (more complex, counterpoint, etc). In other words, here is a collection of holiday music that you can play the very day you download it, as well as each holiday season for years!
The ebook is a 59 page PDF, and has about ten pages of instructional material about reading tablature, playing the glissando, adding harmonies, etc. Also, note these pages in the alternative images for this product: first, an intro page that includes the kalimba tuning used in this book. Next, the Table of Contents, and the page 24 tab for “O Come All Ye Faithful”. When viewing the PDF download, clicking on the sound icon will drive your web browser to download the correct MP3 for the page you are on, so you can hear how the song is supposed sound. Yes, that would be me playing the 17 Note Hugh Tracey Treble kalimba, and I think these beautiful recordings that accompany the songs in this ebook are worth the price of admission alone!
