What a wonderful world Kalimba tab

This calming song by Louis Armstrong has such a positive sentiment about the wonderful world that we live in. Originally recorded in 1967, this song is evergreen and still finds it's way into modern films such as the Disney hit 'Finding Dory'.

It has been covered by various artists but we think that Louis Armstrong's version is the best. His voice brings out the emotion of the lyrics and when played on the kalimba, this song becomes even more chilled. For reference, here is a video of me playing the song on a coconut thumb piano so that you can hear what the track sounds like. When your confident, play along with me.

And I think to my self, what a won-der-ful world.

That’s a Bb. Tune the B down half a step.
