My biggest challenge on the Ocarina is in my head.  Sometimes I will play along with the piano at church on my Poly C.  We will play though multiple key signatures consecutively.  Thinking in each key as we switch causes me trouble sometimes.  Example:  Eb one song, Em next, Ab then D.   

The main thing is practice, muscle memory and more practice. 

It is a fun journey, however.    Smiley

I think that is the thing I am enjoying the second most, after just being able to make beautiful music, is getting more familiar with hearing the key a song is played in and trying to match it.  Something I am working on is the scales. http://uazu.net/ocarina/scales/scale-major-G.html

Thank you for the great link for working on scales!

I like working through the circle of fifths while playing arpeggios.  You could start doing Major chord arpeggios and then switch to minor or seventh etc.
