Wow, I bought mine from the same guy. Mine's not blue though.

Gnomon: Thanks for posting in my thread (I'm just gonna reply here since ocarina_child has the same problem) and offering this fingering chart, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to use this for my ocarina. It doesn't tell me how to play any notes (i.e., E, G, B, D, F) for when I want to read sheet music. Am I doing something wrong?

Then please don't be rude. If people have something to share, they will, I'm sure. If you don't get any answers, that means you'll have to work it out yourself.

Ocarina child, I haven't seen an 8-hole ocarina like yours before. I've got charts for four different types, but this doesn't include yours.

Ocarinas are not very accurately tuned instruments, so it is usually necessary to treat the fingering chart only as a suggestion, and to experiment around it. It's possible that the chart I gave you will work for that blue instrument, even though it looks very different. It's also possible that the 10-hole version will work with a small amount of modification:

Tch, sorry if that chart is not self explanatory.

1. Play the notes do re mi fa so la ti. Do you get a proper musical sounding scale? Then this is the right chart for your instrument.

2. Find out what the key of your ocarina is by covering all the finger holes and blowing reasonably strongly. This is the keynote. This is known as do. If you have a piano, find out which note this is on the piano and you will know the key of your ocarina. For example do = G. If you haven't got a piano, you'll have to get a musical friend who plays some other instrument to identify the note for you.

3. If do is G, then re is A, mi is B and so on.

If you've problems, e-mail me.

Revised instructions for tch:

If you don't want to play along with anybody else but just play on your own, ignore the above and use these instructions:

1. Play the notes do re mi fa so la ti. Do you get a proper musical sounding scale? Then this is the right chart for your instrument.

2. Treat the notes as follows:

do = C
re = D
mi = E
fa = F
so = G
la = A
ti = B

do# = C# or Db
re# = D# or Eb
fa# = F# or Gb
so# = G# or Ab
la# = A# or Bb
