Friends,

Here is a link to a recent blog from my website regarding my new series of mbira transcriptions in tablature notation, titled MbiraTab, published by Bachovich Music Publications. The post includes descriptions of all four volumes of MbiraTab plus video demonstrations of each tune in the series.

My students at Winthrop University have been quite successful learning the complexities of mbira using tablature notation. Many have created their own tabs. Below is a video of two of my students, Sarah Hann and Ian Lee, playing Sarah’s transcription of Bangidza. Both Sarah and Ian have been playing mbira for two years.
