I always include the fingering charts when I ship an ocarina, but sometimes they get misplaced after a while. So here are the fingering charts for all of my ocarinas.
If you have an 11 hole C or D ocarina, you can use the 12 hole fingering charts, just ignore the lowest note on the chart.
The ocarina is a C transposing instrument, so the C fingering chart is a must. However, I sometimes like to play the other tunings in actual concert pitch as opposed to transposing the music. This is particularly valuable when faced with a piece of music that is just slightly outside the normal range of a C ocarina. For this reason I always include a "concert pitch " fingering chart with any ocarina not tuned to C. As far as I know, I am am the only maker that does this.
