Easy Kalimba. Gospel Songs for Absolute Beginners. Play by Number

  • Product Code: Easy-Kalimba-Gospel-Songs
  • Availability: In Stock

You have never played music before or cannot read sheet music, and yet you

want to play inspiring hymns, famous religious folksongs, and spirituals? 

Don’t worry! You will begin to play right away. Many spirituals "sorrow 

songs" are slow and melancholic and are ideally suitable for kalimba.

We made our pictured sheet music as simple as possible. 

You’ll play by number-coded circles. No musical staff or notes. The

easy-to-play songs and melodies were adapted especially for beginners.

You will be able to begin to play right away if the keys of your instrument

have number notations. Most kalimbas already have them.

Our sheet music is universal and suitable for 10-17 note kalimbas.

Each of the modern kalimbas usually has engraved numbers and letters representing the name of the notes.

The low notes are in the center of the kalimba. The notes become higher as you move away from the center.

The order of the notes alternates from right to left, going outward as you move up the scale.

Taking “C D E F G A B C”, “C” is on the right side, and then you will find “D” on the left.

The standard 17-note kalimba contains 3 octaves:

1) a full 2nd small octave,

2) a 3rd small octave, and

3) 3 notes from the 4th small octave.

The 2nd small octave goes from C4 to C5 and is depicted in our sheet

music as simple numbers. The notes from the 3rd small octave have

numbers with one dot above each number. The 3 notes in the 4th

minor octave C6, D6, and E6 are depicted by numbers with two

dots above them.

We also put one or two dots above the numbers in the sheet music if

they use an octave other than the main kalimba octave. The dots will

help you to begin to play immediately.

Attention: songs have been transposed for a diatonic range. Some

melodies might be changed and simplified.
