Title: Correct Finger Placement on Mountain Ocarinas
Post by: Cliff on January 01, 2009, 12:04:23 pm
Please note: our goal in making these videos is to help you to enjoy your ocarina and to grow as a musician. Unfortunately, the production quality is rather poor. Please feel free to post questions and to offer any feedback or suggestions that might increase the helpfulness of future videos. With your input, and as time and resources permit, we hope to get better and better.



Please let us know what you think after you've watched it.

Please read the following in a pirate voice:

What's a pirate's favorite musical instrument?
The ocarrrrrrrrrrina.

Where does he like to play it?
In the carrrrrrrrrrrr.

Where else does he like to play it?
In the barrrrrrrrrrrr.

I could keep going with this but I don't want to get banned.

I sometimes like to do one step back and carefully watch videos for the very beginners like this, and I always find them useful. One can ALWAYS focus to be even lighter in her grip, to be more quick and agile.  Thanks

Ya, it can definitely pay off to go over beginner material. Sometimes you'll pick out something basic that you missed the first time through plus it's just nice to re-visit Karl's friendly face:)
