Hi everyone. So I finally got myself a proper ocarina after wanting one for years.

Just thought I'd share some practice videos I did today. I've only had it for a week so I'm a beginner :)

Wow sorry Akairyuu just seeing these now. You've certainly got a talent for it if that's a beginner! I particularly like the first one and the Hobbit really well done. So it's a cone is it? Does it have holes in it like a recorder? I'm sure you have covered this before but my memory is failing lately lol xx

Thanks Spiritlove :)

It's sort of a flat oval/egg shape. You get different types; the type I have is a 12-hole transverse which is also called the "sweet potato" ocarina. In fact ocarina is Latin for little goose because the shape kind resembles a goose lol. My one has 10 holes on top and two thumb holes underneath. The fingering is similar to the recorder in that you lift your fingers from right to left to raise the pitch.
