Playing the patterns

These are melodic patterns whose parts are complementary and create a polyrhythm.
These patterns are not derived directly from a traditional repertoire and does not pretend to replace traditional kalimba learning.
It is advisable to use the basics outlined here as a canvas and use his intuition (wether you feel being a musician or not! ) to develop his own melodies and to make the kalimba sing.

In each series, each pattern is developed in two differents tempi:
A: slow tempo, in order to well detailed.
B: normal tempo (basic).
