I’m really interest to see the variety of instruments these notes are used for 🙂 I’ve been contemplating trying a new instrument recently too, perhaps this could give me some ideas!

Hey everyone! So i’ve been playing with adding polls – i hope this will give me more opportunity to interact with you all and get an understanding of what everyone plays etc 🙂
I mainly play the flute, but also test out the notes i write on a piano app 🙂
I’ve been thinking more and more about trying something new… would love to hear what everyone else plays and enjoys!

Hi! I heard you were trying out different instruments. I play a melodica and it’s a great way to start out if you want to play the piano eventually. Good Luck!

HEY. IM PLAYING KALIMBA. im having a hard time making sharps ang flats. I dont know the “formula” on how to generate a flat or sharp sound wothout changing the tuning of the instrument. Any idea how?

Hey Jem! I’ve had similar questions from other Kalimba players – here’s the answer!
The kalimba can’t play sharps or flats without messing up the tuning (as you mentioned) therefore the best songs for you are ones in the key of C Major (natural notes only, no sharps or flats).
Most, about 90%, of the songs on noobnotes can be shifted to the key of C to allow you to play them on the kalimba – pick a song you like and check out the green ‘note settings’ section at the top of the page. If the key is “C Major”, this one should be good for you to play. If its not, there may be a button that says “Move to C Major” – give that a click and see how the notes are now 🙂
I’ve made a list of all the songs on noobnotes with either are already in C Major, or can be moved into C Major by pressing that “Move to C Major” button – you can see that list here: https://noobnotes.net/browse/browse-songs-in-c-major/
I hope that helps for now – i’m thinking of other ways i can make it easier for Kalimba players (an others who can’t play sharps/flats) to find the right songs for them 🙂
Happy playing! -nat

Hey Olivia! I’m glad you asked – i’ve done loads of christmas songs and was starting to run out of ideas for more to do – did you have any in mind in particular?! “12 Days of Christmas” is on the to-do list already 😀 nat
