Hi folks,

i just got my first ocarina for xmas, it's a Blue sweet potato 12 hole.
It came with a book with tunes and a fingering chart.
However the chart it came with shows fingering for a 13 hole ocarina (it has an extra hole between the pinky and ring finger holes on the right hand).
So, my chart doesn't match my ocarina, what to do?

Is there a "standard" 12 hole fingering chart or are they particular to each brand of ocarina,
what chart should i use?

your help much appreciated,
thanks awfully

Dennis

Oh, a Rotter. Your ocarina doesn't have a split pinky hole like the one on the fingering chart. Follow the fingering chart Rotter provided. The split pinky hole is used for C sharp. You will finger your C sharp as follows:
