Done. Some things to keep in mind while playing this song.

1. The highest parts of the song are out of the range of the Ocarina so I went lower. Hope you don't mind.

2. The lowest parts of the song are also JUST out of range, but if you blow a bit softer you can JUST hit them.

3. I made this playing by ear and going through it note by note so it may not sound perfect, but I'm satisfied with the end result [it sounds VERY similar] and I hope you will be too. With that said...



Please let me know what you think of it. And thank you for the challenge!

Wow, this made me curious. What youtube video (or any other media online) for that ballad would you suggest me, to discover the tune? Thanks!

I was wondering about that as well, I've seen at least 5 different versions of that song on youtube, and I don't know which is the original ;p

Nothing better than watching docjazz playing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnTnhmwwUYs

The tab is very accurate, I liked it, and now is one of my favourite songs to play in front of the sea Tongue

On a streaming some days ago David told that The ballad of the windfish was his favourite song to play on ocarina, so I had to check it out on his videos, and then almost inmediatly I saw this thread and fall in love with the song.

One of these days I'll probably record my own version, although I may struggle some time making a proper guitar backing track.

Hah, this is funny. I learnt this song a few days ago, playing along to the docjazz video. Save for the improv part, if you have both a G and a C MOs, it can be played in tune to the video. There's time to switch ocarinas.

I made a tab (my first tab ever, yay) using the Ocarina-C TrueType font. The notes are wrong for the G part, but the fingering is where it's at. That C# on the 5th line is IMHO easier to play using the extra tonehole on the G MO (cover all toneholes except the right pinky).
