This sheet music book will help you begin to play music simply and easily, with no required knowledge of reading notes.
If you are a beginner, playing by notes can be difficult. It is easier to follow letters.
Traditional Kalimba Tablature calls Tabs.
Each tabs should match the number of tines on your kalimba. For example, if your kalimba has 8 tines, you need to search for “8-note kalimba tabs.”
Our sheet music is not Tabs and it is not for a specific kalimba, but it is universal and suitable for any 8-17 note kalimbas.
Follow the letters… and begin to play! Even if you don’t know musical notes, you will confidently be able to play easily using the letter notation!
This book might include only letters and it will be enough to begin to play,
but we decided to add classic note symbols to help teach them and show musical notation.
All songs were adapted especially for the kalimba, which is a diatonic musical instrument and has no flat keys.
Most songs will be played within one octave.
Attention: Songs have been transposed for a DIATONIC range. Some melodies might be changed and simplified. If you have flat keys on your instrument,please use the classic music score for piano.
