Griffin has an app called iTalk for the iPhone that let's you record your voice (or, for the purposes of this post, Ocarina playing).  It also has a desktop sync program that let's you save your recordings to your computer.  You could use it to record yourself playing at different intervals and listen to the differences.  I'm using it to give me positive feedback (since I can listen to previous recordings and hear myself playing better.  It's only five bucks.  How do you guys track your progress?

Only by listening while playing :-).

I had (and sometimes still have) the bad habit to give too much weight to the moments when I play a bit worse, saying to myself things like "I'm getting worse", "what a shame", and the like.
If you'll ever notice some regression in some recording don't give it any importance: it's normal to have ups and downs; you can't just go upwards. What matters is the difference in the long run, not at every single try. Smiley

Good luck

Spatolo,
  I had a day like that last week. I just couldn't play anything right, I got frustrated and just took a break. It was just a bad day I think I was having. Next day things sounded good! Smiley
