Kalimba tablature runs from the bottom of the page up to the top. The tablature has a space for each tine. Tablature for the chromatic kalimba represents the front 15 whole note tines with white tines, while the gray-shaded tines represent the chromatic tines that are on the back side of the physical kalimba.

In this exercise, we make a little bit of music that will teach the right hand how the chromatic notes are layed out on the front/right and back/left. Play this over and over until your right index finger learns how to find the notes. Remember you can always move the chromatic notes around a bit more— until they make total sense to you.
You can purchase the Hugh Tracey Chromatic Kalimba at the Kalimba Magic Online Shop.
