Author: Alto Sax

Im new to the hole ocarina thing, but a couple of my friends have the songbird pendant ocainas and they were pretty cool, playing zelda and all. so my grandparents bought me and 8 hole (6 on top, 2 on bottom) ocarina, which i now know is peruvian in nature. i have searched all over for music and fingering charts, and i have seen lots of posts on this as well.

for some zelda music go to this site

I am also wondering if since there is hardly any music for the peruvian, if i should go for a songbird ocarina, any ideas?

The biggest problem with the Peruvian ocarina is that it has a very limited range, so there are very few tunes that will fit on it. The Mountain Ocarina has a bigger range (an octave and a fourth), which means that there are more tunes you can play on the instrument. I don't know the ranges for other types.

Thanks for the info, i will look around and see what ocarinas i like, and in the mean time practice with mine, maybe try to figure out some fingerings for some songs.
