I'm looking for a fingering chart for a 4hole english pendant. Can anybody post some?

I know zombiefewd1 posted 2 but I can't read them. It has do re mi... in it. Could anbody post one with "real" notes on it?

And my second question is: How to translate that to "real" notes....? You know, I only know cdefgab and those with sharp and minor but nothing of that. There has to be a way to "translate" it, right? How to do it?

Thanks

Its not really annoying, but its more obvious :) The first note, or Do, would obviously be C, so on so on.

I guess if you just started learning sheets you might need a direct translation, after all, we are here to help :)

Does anyone know of a decent fingering chart for the Focalink Double SG? Focalink just sent a Double AC chart w/ mine, which is hard to understand even if it were the right chart.

There's an extra hole on the straw-fired version of the double fokalink AG, does it follow the same fingering chart as the other double?

This is a finger chart made by "the ocarinist" for a 12 hole oc.
Spoiler: click to toggle

here is the pendant version.

Spoiler: click to toggle


personally i find this finger chart more useful because i dont know how to read sheet music , numerical tabs or the letter system.

i think that this is called "diatonic" system but this is the system that i know how to read , maybe the administrators of the site can make a section for this kind of system.

Hi Moonsyne, thanks for sharing the charts. I have a 9 hole and was looking at the "9 Hole Sweet Potato, H. Fiegn" chart, and wanted to let you know that the paper says it's actually a 10 hole! (4 left, 4 right, 2 bottom).

I'm new to all this, but while reading it i think i found an error there: "Position No.13 - Open holes Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8", but it seems more like 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8, right? Mine is a 9 hole, but it looks similar to this one, so if i could clarify this chart, it would be helpful!

thanks
regards

has anyone figured out alternate fingerings?

I would be interested in alternate fingerings too...
With my 10-hole ocarina, I have noticed that if I uncover the two back holes, the note goes up a fifth. So for example if I cover the 8 front holes, but NOT the back holes, it will sound like a G instead of a C (it also works for other notes, so for example a D becomes an A etc).

Also, by rotating the ocarina just a little bit anticlockwise with all holes covered, I obtain a low B (just lower than the low C)...

Does this work for you too?

Could someone please tell me what fingerings produce what notes on a 5 hole sweet potato? There are 4 holes on top and one on bottom. It looks like the ocarina from zelda. I bought it a few years ago just for the sake of having it but now I actually want to learn how to play it. Yes, I know how to read sheet music.

edit: Would this be accurate? http://site.stlocarina.com/fc/6holeCMajor.html
It has two holes on the bottom where I only have one.

I was making my own Tabs => Sheet Music chart for 4-6 hole ocarinas, but I would like someone to look it over for mistakes. (A program that can read .doc is required.)
:pendant: http://dimensionf.wikispaces.com/file/view/Ocarina-SheetmusicTabsConverter.doc/153930805/Ocarina-SheetmusicTabsConverter.doc (version 1.2)

I used the notes from Songbird's composer as a guideline, as well as one of Songbird's songbooks for the note names, but I wound up with two different notes for B if you look down at the "Sharps" lists. Which one is correct?

The image credits are a bit incomplete; I figured that I would correct those when I re-do the notes portion to be a single image rather than a zillion overlayed images.

Thanks!

You will most likely receive a fingering chart with your ocarina. If you ordered from songbird, he also sends a few songs tabbed in a booklet style fingering chart sheet

Hi folks! If you're looking for a decent guide for playing ten-hole ocarinas, we've just reprinted "The Mezzetti Ocarina Tutor" in English & French - it deals with one of the oldest, most established methods known for playing ten-holes. Mezzetti first published this method around 100 years ago, but it's still one of the best around. Our edition comes to around 70 pages. It's not really for beginners, but for those with a grounding in ocarina playing it should definitely help further technique. There are only a few copies of this method in publication nowadays - without a doubt ours is the most comprehensive, so if you're interested, have a look at our store: www.ocarinashop.net :)

Thanks & best of luck!

I agree, "The Mezzetti Ocarina Tutor" is really one of the best method books for the ocarina. And also one of the oldest. It is quite advanced, and the exercises are quite difficult, but very useful.

It may not be the most useful for a total beginner at first, but soon it will be as they get more familiar with the instrument.

This book is also available in PDF for download at Giorgio Pacchioni's Biblioteca dell'Ocarina (since it is more than 100 years old, there is no copyright), but, of course, it is much more useful to have a printed version. So, if you don't feel like printing out 76 pages and having them banded into a book - buying such a great book for 12 euros is not a bad deal, in my opinion.

Yep! In case anyone's looking for more information, here's the description from our site...

Quote:
 
Albert Napoleone Mezzetti (Budrio 1843 – London 1906) was an excellent musician, besides being a very enterprising man.

He and his brother Ercole were both members of the group of ocarina players who called themselves the “Montanari dell'Appenino” and their concert performances made the ocarina, invented in 1853 in Budrio by Giuseppe Donati, famous throughout Europe.

After these extensive and successful tours he decided to settle in London where he began his many- sided activities as shop keeper, musician (he knew how to play many instruments), music teacher, distributor , promoter and inventor of new forms of the ocarina.

It was during these activities that the Mezzetti Ocarina Tutor was devised and printed in English and French, presumably towards the end of the nineteenth century and today it is still considered to be one of the most fundamental and complete music practise and tutor books. It also provides an interesting historical source on the ocarina and the musical taste of people in general at that time.

The new edition is the precise reprint of a copy of this unique method which was donated to the Ocarina Museum in Budrio by Alberto Napoleone's great grandson, Adrian Mezzetti.

The Municipality of Budrio, the Ocarina Museum and the “Gruppo Ocarinistico Budriese” decided to reprint it in collaboration with the Austrian “Ocarinamusic workshop” so that as many people as possible around the world could gain benefit from it.

So...are the certain notes that the ocarina just can't play, or is the fingering just not listed? I'm using a Maparam Alto C, and there's no fingering for B-sharp/C-flat. Is it incapable of this note, or was that overlooked?
B is C flat, and B# is C. They're the same note.

Finger chart for New Vista 9 hole transverse,
with cross fingering in Key of G (and C)

I had originally scanned the sheet that came with the ocarina, but it didn't turn out nice, so I remade the whole thing, using the original as the basis.

9 hole cross fingering, with the range of a 12 hole :)

Hi there!

I'm sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, but are you sure your ocarina is an Alto C? I own what STL calls an 12 hole Alto, and this is in fact a 12 hole TNG Soprano F ocarina. STL has a different naming system, if you had bought a Tenor C from STL, that is what would be the same as the one on the C major 12 hole of STL's fingering composer.

Check out the fingering composer for the 12 hole F Major, or the 12 hole G Major.

To know the tuning of your ocarina, try to play against a tuner with all holes covered except subholes.

Hope that helps.

Actually, it doesn't matter which ocarina you have - just use the fingering chart for the alto C (i.e. tenor, if using STL's naming conventions). Using "fingering charts" for soprano F or soprano G ocarinas is bad for you, even if you have a soprano F or a soprano G ocarina. Trust me on this one, at least until I write a huge article explaining why.

Thanks, guys. And yes, I'm pretty sure It is an Alto C. I bought from Teddy's Do Re Me's(Or whatever it was called), it has AC on it, and I tuned it and its notes match the fingering chart for an Alto C.

I have a Night in F and I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with the subholes.

There are two: one is paired with the right forefinger hole, but closer to you. The other is paired with the right middle finger hole, but further from you. Both, used in isolation, seem to drop the pitch of the low F down to E. Used together they give you something of rather fuzzy pitch which suggests you maybe aren't meant to do that.

Neither of them seems designed for quick playing, though sliding forward with the middle finger seems to work a bit better; my forefinger can't easily cover both the main hole and the subhole, it's too convex at the tip. (At the moment I'm trying to play "Sakura" in A, i.e. starting on D and dropping to E at the bottom).

How do Night envisage me using this layout?

8: both covered
9: top hole covered
6: bottom hole covered
0: no hole covered


Then I found Tabs of Greensleeves with 90(A#), 68(F#) and 69(G#) in them.

The second line is correct.

The other 2 are not, atleast not to my knowledge.

What you have charted out in the second line is what was provided in the Songbird Fingering Chart for the 3 pendants i ordered as well.

OK, I checked my notes,
The first line was found to be made by someone called "king EpiCai" for his hand-crafted ocarinas
The second line was found in a video from DocJazz: Tutorial No.2, so I already suspected Songbird or STL.
The third line was on a book with childen's songs that was was delivered with my 4-hole from Rotter, so it might be a reduced set for easy learning.
