Cris Gale's ocarina method book is available for preorder and she's trying to get the word out. The purpose of this contest is to help her advertise her new book both here and Facebook and hopefully make some funny ocarina related memes in the process. Retailing at only $12.99, it's one of the more affordable and accessible method books available. It also includes an instruction video series that covers all of the main chapters.

Contest Instructions:

1. Create a funny ocarina-related graphic (appropriate for all ages) about learning the ocarina and refer to "www.LearnTheOcarina.com". The web address must appear on the graphic and the purpose of the graphic should be to encourage people to visit the website (yep you're making an advertisement!)

See these examples:
Examples


2. Post it in this topic and ALSO post it on Facebook, tag Cris Gale, and link to www.LearnTheOcarina.com in the image description. Or post it here and ask a friend to post it on Facebook ect.
3. Like and share any and all of the FB posts you like.


Rules:

Rules can be changed and amended at our discretion.

Entries must be appropriate for all ages

Entrants must follow the above instructions

Members/accounts created after this post can enter, but cannot vote in the voting topic.

Enter as many times as you like, but only one prize per entrant

Unsportsmanlike behavior will lead to disqualification.

The contest period ends at 11:59 cst July 15th



Prizes:

1st Place; A signed copy of Cris Gale's Hal Leonard Ocarina Method and a matte black Night by Noble plastic.
2nd/3rd Place : A signed copy of Cris Gale's Hal Leonard Ocarina Method.

If a lot of people enter, additional prizes may be added! (4th/5th/6th place ect)

Also, if you already have the book, you can request it be sent to someone else or as a prize for a future TON contest.


The goal of this contest is to advertise Cris' method book in a fun way and interesting way. Entries don't have to be Zelda or videogame specific. The examples are just what we came up with. By entering the contest you give Cris permission to post/share your entries on her various social media pages.


Have fun!

Hal Leonard usually have quite a bit of detail about their stuff on their website, I think - sample pages and a detailed contents list. Is that on the way?

I think it should already be up. Cris said the book has already been printed and she's expecting her advance copies in the mail.

Thanks - Google bounced me straight to Amazon which didn't have anything like that.

Seems a pretty reasonable design except for the total absence of D major (for a folk player, the second most important scale after G). And I would relegate C major to the end of the book, it doesn't have a central role.

D major is in the book. It's on page 57.

Front page topics don't accept attachments. We've done contests before and had to have a separate entries thread for people to attach photos.

Imgur can work just as well. Just upload it there and embed it here.

Not exactly original but you said "ocarina memes" so if they count as valid entries, awesome. And if they don't, I hope someone got a good laugh. ;)

Also the opinions of Batman do not necessarily reflect my own or anyone else's.

Greg may be a good guy, but in retrospect maybe he's not suitable for all ages (even if it is only tobacco)?

I'll leave a link, but no need to scar the children with a direct picture post:
Good guy Greg.

There's a workaround for that. Attach the image in another thread, and then link to the image from the Front page thread.

Cumbersome, yes, but possible.

Is this still going on or not?

Would like to know who made the best Ocarina meme. They're ALL so good! :)

Cris' method book is now available on iTunes. You can read the method book on your phone or iPad. The cool part is that the videos are integrated so you can either use it as sheet music or video tutorials.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/hal-leonard-ocarina-method/id1134972145?mt=11&ign-mpt=uo%3D4

It's also cheaper than the paper version.
