Thank you!!! I haven’t tried a new instrument in 10 years and I saw lots of people posting songs online that look like ‘1° 2° 5° 2° (1° 1 3 5)’ and I was so confused on what that was saying. My Kalimba arrives in the mail today and I’m so excited to start learning again. I did piano as a child but fell out of it and I think this will be similar enough that I can pick up alright.
