The Duet Ocarina book includes 26 tunes through the ages from the 13th Century to the present day.
This book is recommended for use with all Ocarina Workshop Duet ocarinas. Tunes are notated with tablature to show which holes to cover and are written for both GG and CC duets. Guitar chords and informative text make this the complete tutor that will help you play your first pieces easily and develop an extensive repertoire on these, the most unusual and captivating of ocarinas.
You will soon learn how to harmonise perfectly on these double-chambered instruments. Playing with the two sides in unison is also a useful skill to add variety (and surprise) to your performance.
The Duet Ocarina CD Edition includes an audio CD featuring all tunes in the book played on both CC and GG Duet Ocarinas. Listen to each song first, then enjoy playing along!
