I would like to get a MO but I am having trouble choosing. What types of songs are best for the C? What types are best for the G? Can you play Zelda, Christian, and Video games songs better on a C or a G?

I couldn't fail to disagree with you less.

I don't do Zelda or video game music, but many standard Christian hymns are written in a range that fits better on the C. But that's only a consideration if you plan to play along with the organ or piano or choir. For solo play it doesn't matter at all, so it just comes down to whether you prefer higher or lower pitch. The G is about a half octave higher than the C.

I bought both of them.  I found the G a little easier to learn on, but I prefer the sound of the C.  If you are playing with other people then the  C might be the better choice, unless you learn to play the G in a non transposing way.

Thanks Harp Player. So you're saying that the C has better "side features"(able to play with a choir/piano, etc.)? Does the G have any characteristics that are specifically for it?(And other than having one extra hole and being in a different octave)

The G sounds much louder to me. That is something that can be a big advantage at times, but it can also work against you in a small space.   I know that right now they are only offering the G.   My advice would be to go ahead and get the G to start learning, then if you decide you like the Ocarina get the CODA when it becomes available.


I also can highly recommend the learning course that is available.  The demos that are on CD with it were recorded on a G so it will be great combination.

Thank you. Sorry I don't catch on quickly, but while the G is louder, the C is easier for the ears? Then I can wait for the C ocarinas to come out. But does anybody know what key the CODA will be in?

See http://www.ocarinaboard.com/bb/index.php?topic=2512.msg19001#msg19001 for the range of notes. "Basically" the Coda will be in C major, but will be full chromatic, so all keys will be (theoretically) possible, though overall range may be limited, depending on where on the scale you start ... starting on A, for instance, only leaves you with an octave and a bit to play with ... not a major issue Wink
