In this lesson, I will demonstrate how to play on the lyre, the traditional melody usually sang to "Adon Olam"(Lord of the World); one of the beautiful closing hymns sang at the end of a traditional Shabbat Service.
The melody is in the melodic minor scale, starting on D, so the 10 strings of the Kinnor are tuned:
I also demonstrate how it is possible to play sharps and flats on a replica of an ancient lyre...without the benefit of having sharpening levers, which are usually found on harps today!
The notes of the melody are:
AABbA, GFED, AA high E high D C
B natural A G# A, A
A B natural C# high D, AAGF, F
