Just out of curiousity: what do you prefer to play in those parking lots?
From my experience I play slow pieces now because the reverb sounded terrible with fast pieces.
I play eg Greensleeves in slow (sounds really melancholic this way) or Halleluja from Cohen.

I've noticed that Ocarinas do well for slow and dramatic songs, particularly the MO key of C. Some of the best sounding ones I've played are Ocarina of Time's Song of Time, Zelda's Lullaby, and Lord of the Rings' Concerning Hobbits aka the Shire Theme. To me, some songs sound as if they are meant to be played on certain instruments. For example, Shiek's Theme sounds intended for harp, Gerudo Valley for the guitar. Concerning Hobbits is one that is definitely made for the Ocarina, at least the first, slow part. The middle, where it's happier and upbeat sounds more like it is for the violin.
