Before I got my wonderful MOs, I worked hard on a recorder.

Now, I have a hard time not tooting the MO 6th instead of the 5th, because the same finger is the 6th on MOs and the 5th on the other.

Shoot.

Well, 4efs. I'll be doing that.  Note that the problem exists amplified for me because I'm not note/Hz conscious, I am relative-to-tonic conscious.

And using sheets/fakes per previous posts of mine;  One sheet of staves works for all instruments because there is no key signature and the bottom line represents the tonic, whatever instrument I have in hand, and whatever/however-many key(s) I wish to play the piece in.

[transpose to E - major or minor as the piece calls for - then tell your abc file that the key is C.]

kypfer, I looked in vain for your similar problem at the link you gave me.  Took a while to figure you meant I should get out the drill or epoxy.

Howdy to both of you.

OH, OH!  Forgot to search here for the physics of the double/triple ocarina designs and an understanding of how in heck the fingering for the non-diatonic half-steps can work.

Please read my mind well enough to know I haven't found the info yet as you read this, and give me a good link?

lol;  Thanks

... sorry, I never was much good at the mind-reading stuff, I think I probably mis-read your original question  Huh

Well, I did find the basic answer to ocarina design;  it's nature, rather. Hooda thunk ol' Helmholtz would be involved.

And, as best I cab see so far, my MOs are single chamber so that may be the whole answer.
