Notice the tone holes
increase in size. That is the elegance of simplicity, the wonderful
marriage of science and art. With the four holes, you can go from
do to do and, by SLIDING your
fingers gradually off the holes, cover each and every frequency between.
With all the holes open, blow into the whistle only enough to make a clear
tone, not too forcefully nor too timidly. Now, cover the holes completely
and slowly slide your fingers off while you blow, then slide them back over
the holes. Now try it again and say "tu-tu" while you do it.
Practice, practice, practice. The "tu-tu" part is a basic wind instrument
technique that will give you the breaks between the notes. Scroll the
page down for scale charts, including the Western Scale (do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti-do)
and several others. Notice the fingering for the Wearable Mini-Ocarinas,
Bear Paw Ocarinas (Paint and Play) and the "Traditional Model" (Including
the Zelda Replicas) are the same.
