 Sweet potato - XL Ocarina
Author: Distance 
Date:   2006-08-16 21:38

Hey, folks. I bought an ocarina from the Songbird Ocarina shop here on the internet. It said that the ocarina came with a book with some songs in it an' all, but I dunno if it has a fingering chart with it. I asked my band instructor if he had one, but he said he didn't have one anymore...T.T But anyway, here's the ocarina:

So, could someone help me?

That's a six holed ocarina (four on the top, two on the bottom) but it's not a standard Peruvian one. The Peruvian ocarina has all the holes roughly the same size. This one has very big holes and very small holes.

I've never seen a fingering chart for one like this anywhere on the web.

My buddy bought Link's ocarina. ^ ^...I'm pretty sure it does come with a fingering chart. She learned it very quickly.Gnomon wrote:
