Keyboard-Notes-Mapping

 

Having watched the ‘Harmonium tutorial: Introduction’ video which is located below I have had a go myself experimenting with droning the root and fifth notes

Please note that I could not work out how to type the ‘Ma’ note on the black key as it is above with the ’1′ above it so I have used an underlined M. (Please tell me if you know how its done)

(Where there is one note on top of another they are played at the same time)

I recently found this video on youtube and it is very useful in explaining keyboard fingering. It explains nicely for those with no keyboard experience how to compliment notes.

 

Just three simple chords are used for this melody.
