Easy-to-Play Gospel Songbook for Kalimba: Play by Number. Sheet Music for Beginners (Paperback)


(This book cannot be returned.)
You have never played music before or cannot read sheet music, and yet you
want to play inspiring hymns, famous religious folk songs, and spirituals?
Don't worry You will begin to play right away. Many spiritual
"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.

Note: songs have been transposed for a diatonic range. Some
melodies might be changed and simplified.

We appreciate your feedback, which helped us identify and correct all of the typos. Thank you for bringing them to our attention.
