Description

This simple numbers-based book for the 6-Note Pentatonic Kalimba can be used as a starting point for almost every kalimba we sell.? See the extra images to see how the music is notated.? Write the note numbers on the corresponding tines with sharpee marker and “play by numbers”.

The book includes 10 songs for the standard tuning (Camptown Races, Five Foot Two, riff from Sunshine on a Cloudy Day). However, the book also instructs you in how to change the tuning of one of the tines by half a step, and an entirely new repertoire of 6-Note pentatonic music opens up to us, including songs like Amazing Grace, Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen, I’ve Got Peace Like a River, and All God’s Critters – a total of 16 more songs.

As this numbers-based book uses the number 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8 (skipping the 4 and 7 that are not in the major pentatonic scale) it maps into the numbers-based system for the 8-Note kalimba – that is, this book will work for that one too! In fact, it can easily be used on larger kalimbas such as the 12-Note, the Hugh Tracey Alto and the Hugh Tracey Treble kalimbas.
