Usually, a guide for kalimba offers the possibility of playing by letter or by number, with letters being more common. The modern kalimba often has engraved letters representing the name of the notes. Under the engraved letter (or above the number), you can find one or two dots. These dots represent the octave above the center octave. We also put dots under the letters in the sheet music if they use an octave other than the main kalimba octave. In this book, we recommend playing by letter and/or color. Even if the signs are not engraved on the keys, normally, however, each kalimba has letter-coded stickers included in the set. Usually, they are not color-coded and since our book doesn’t include stickers, we suggest making color-coded stickers yourself. This is very easy and you can do it with very small pieces of colored paper. Our sheet music is not for a specific kalimba but is universal and suitable for 8-17 note kalimbas. We made our pictured sheet music as simple as possible, songs have been transposed for a diatonic range. Some melodies might be changed and simplified. You’ll quickly begin to play by letter-coded circles. The book has two parts. The first one contents folk songs, the second one has popular hymns and spirituals. Table of contents Part 1.
