Anybody have a kalimba? I have a newbie question. [View all]

About the whole matter of kalimbas.... help me out here. Isn't it a bit confusing that the notes alternate from thumb to thumb? Wouldn't it be better for long term music ability to just arrange the keys like a real piano? I mean, with a real piano you can almost play a song by ear because you know that the farther right you go the higher the note... but with a kalimba you might have to skip over to the left side for the proper note... which means you have to MEMORIZE everything? Or always read tabs? How does that help a beginner?
