    Default Tabs for Kalinka?

    Has anyone got tabs or links for Kalinka for mandolin?

    I tried balaljka but I couldnt reach the 5. fret, with my thumb on the 1. fret, so I sold it.
    I'm not collecting, not collecting, not........OUMM.....

    I don't have TABS for any russian music....I really suggest learning to read staff notation as it would open up a world of written music for you.

    Here is a simplified version you can learn by ear or a screen shot of the notated version. Not so complicated.



    I took a screen shot of the sheet music:

    1. make a list of the Russian songs you want to learn.
    2. get a subscription for musescore.com
    3. Download the songs from musescore (simple tune melodies -some scripts have the whole orchestra)
    4. Post a thread on MC of Russian song TABs (the raw .abc files)
    5. Copy a melody and paste it to www.mandolintab.net
    6. Learn the tune using the PDF of TAB and notation
    7. Post the PDF and your recording as a thread to Song-A-Week
    Here: https://www.mandolincafe.com/forum/group.php?groupid=67
    8. Read all the nice comments from your MC friends and admirers.
    9. Go to 5.

    Hehe, I've taken a shortcut.

    I have tuned the two second highest stringpairs as a Balalaika, i.e. I tuned to A4 and E4
    Then I've found my old Balalaika scores/tabs and can start rehearsing. I might dampen the two deeper strings, as I find it difficult to do tremolo over 4 strings with a plectrum. Then I can use the fingers, Balalika style.

    Maybe you can post the TABs to a Russian site and do Irish, English, French and Scottish, OldTime etc. .abc’s for balalaika instead then?
