I have this instrument called a kalimba or mbira, it has 7 tines. Notes from left to right are: e', g, d''', e, c', a, a' but from low pitch to hight it seems to be arranged in this form: E G A C D E A, which I think is a pentatonic blues minor scale. I have been figuring out all this by my own due to the kalimba came without any manual.
Here's a 22 tine example from that Wikipedia page.
Is it possible to transpose melodies from other "normal" non-pentatonic scales to this (pentatonic scale) instrument e.g. Star Wars-The force, which I play on a keyboard with those notes: D D G A A# C A# D.
I just started to learn music theory couples of months ago so I don't know if it's too naive think I could assign some scale to that original melody identify degrees applying tonal harmony and arrange that melody to be able to be played in the pentatonic scale?
