Video Tips for Playing Mountain Ocarinas
Many years ago, I made these informal videos to answer questions posed by friends on our old forum. We decided to share them here because the content is helpful.
(BUT… between you and me, I’m more than a little embarrassed by my clowning around, the poor production quality, and the excessive length of some of the videos. Let us know if you find them helpful.)

Wow, this video is especially long — 28 minutes! Again, it was an informal video I made to help friends in our old forum, so please bear with some of my silliness. If you’re in a hurry, you can skip ahead to 15:44 where I start teaching technique.
