There are various ways to express ocarina fingerings.  Here, I would like to propose a fingering scheme without using images.   It utilizes only letters, so you don't have to use images which is troublesome sometime on the Internet.   I hope you can communicate in forums or by e-mail the ocarina fingerings more easily by using this scheme.

Basic Rules

X's are closed holes.

O's are open. 

@

(Examples)

X-XXXX @X-X:X:XX iall closed, low Aj

O-OOOO @O-OOOO iall open, high Fj

@

The left group is fingering for the left hand, right group is for right hand.

The letters (X or O) that are first in each group (and that are followed by a hyphen) are thumb holes.

The :'s are closed sub-holes.  If there are no :'s, the sub-holes are open.

Fingering Diagram for 12-hole Ocarina

The following is a typical fingering for 12-hole ocarina based on the rule above.

  It may not easy to see if you are not accustomed to the 12-hole fingering already.
 If you are new to 12-hole,  I would recommend looking at a fingering chart with images first
which are available somewhere else on the web.

(From lowest to highest tones)
