  I'm using the "Learning to play Mountain Ocarinas" book to (obviously) learn to play my Mountain Ocarina, but I'm running into one problem that is driving me up a wall. I can't make C sound sound like C. High C and every every other note on the g ocarina sounds fine. If I go through he scale I can make c sound alright, but if I try to hit it right off the bat, it doesn't sound right.
  Anyone else have a wild note the doesn't want to be tamed?  Undecided

Gee, I wish it were only one! LOL! Practicing with a tuner can really help when a note is going awry for some reason or other, a transposing one is helpful of  course when you're playing the G. so you can play your song and just sort of dial in on the problem zone.  Sometimes you're closer than you think but your ear is playing tricks... sometimes not. I tend to have a prob with my low Cs because I go back and forth with the C and the G and play the low b a lot so it seems to get pretty bunged up for me. I am still really struggling with the high E on the C MO, especially my warmstone,
but I think that is a different sort of trouble than your talking about Embarrassed

Anyway, here's a link for an online transposing tuner in case you don't have one already Smiley

In the time that I've had my MO I've really gotten a lot better at being able to hold tha pitch steady with the tuner so if it seems wonky at first just keep at it.

I know how that is. The few times I've played for others, they've said it sounds alright,and I'm thinking no it sounds like a crow in distress! Grin But I have noticed that it happens when I'm in a closed space(i.e. my car), but less when I'm in a large room or outside.
  Thanks for the link for the online tuner. I'll give it a try.
