My gift to the kalimba world is kalimba tablature. It is expressive and elegant. It can display any sort of music, and it reflects my internal conceptualization of the kalimba and its music.
However, not everyone likes my vertical tablature.
If the tablature is too much for you, you might want to try the Numbers-based approach.
Soon, I am going to have a full length Numbers-based book available for sale. Until then, I offer you this short "demo version" of the book for free.
The idea is that you should use a Sharpie marker to draw a few numbers on select tines on your kalimba, representing the "1", "2", "3"... and so on... of the scale. I show you which tines to number for the 8-Note, 10-Note, and 17-Note in C kalimbas. You don't need to number all of the tines, just the ones that a given section uses.
When you are ready to do something else, you can remove the markings on your tines with alcohol wipes.
