IMGUR auto generates BBCode for you, so i just copied and pasted the wrong one. ::)

Well, it shows me this link when I right-click on it, and even if I copy that - it tells me the picture doesn't exist anymore.
Refresh didn't help, neither did deleting all temporary internet files help. The picture just isn't there anymore.

Strange. I'll put in the bbcode shortcut again. It should work after that.

Looks like everything's showing up correctly again  ;D
Here's another one continuing on the theme I started before.

MOD:Added image to the opening post

BTW using the set of alternate fingerings I've entered makes it pretty easy to play a G harmonic minor scale:
G - A - Bb - C - D - Eb - F# - G
which sounds pretty cool and mysterious on an ocarina.

Very nice. I'm a huge fan of the minor scales, although I also like myxolydian modes as well. When the OP starts to get too full, like it already is, then i'll create a pdf for the alternate fingerings and publish them on my scribd. Then I will just link to the scribd in the OP.

You don't need to do that - I already did (I used MS Visio to create a basic ocarina shape, then I created shapes for all regular fingerings, and now for the alternate fingerings as well).
I would really like to release them as a font, but I don't know how to create a true type font without paying like 2 monthly incomes of mine for some stupid font editing software... seriously...

Any True-Type Font is vector based. It has the advantage that the font always looks perfectly sharp, no matter how large You scale it up, or how good the printer is You are using to print them.
My tabs on scribd are based off of my ocarina shapes (thats why I can use alternate fingerings in my tabs as well).

However, a font is much easier to handle, when it comes to size and color changes. Also, I can copy the letter arrangement for the tabs from the FICO, so that you can cope them from / to FICO / MS Word (or openOffice).

The last images don't show up anymore. Do you still have them so you can replace these ?
