Normal and altissimo fingering charts

I have published two new fingering charts:

Normal register fingering chart cover all notes from low Bb to high F# (Bb3-F#6),providing the standard fingering(s) and many alternate ones. Alternate fingerings can be very useful in trills,to play very fast phrases,or to add tonal variety to your playing.

Altissimo register fingering chart cover notes from high F# to very high B (F#6-B7) and includes the fingering that I have used and found to be playable with most of my instruments. Expect that some of such fingerings won’t work for you and be prepared to try different embrochure pressures and reed models/hardness.

You can quickly reach these charts from the top menu.


By any means these aren’t the only fingerings you can use for the altissimo register,and you can find a few more complete charts on the Internet,including:

The Woodwing Fingering Guide site is probably the most exhaustive charts for the regular and upper register.
Level 3 Solutions has fingerings for notes up to D8,with many fingerings that are specific for given sax models.
Insubrica Saxophone Society offers a chart in PDF with many variations for the alto sax.
WardBaxter chart goes up to C6,with many variations for each note.

Please Contact me if you use any fingering that isn’t reported in these charts.
