So, just to make it perfectly clear.

The fingering chart for saxophone works for alto, tenor, soprano, baritone, bass, contrabass, sopranino, soprillo, c melody, etc.

There are minor variations (high F# key, low A key, etc).  But overall, the fingering system for all saxophones is the same.

So check out the saxophone finger chart.

Saxophone and Your Fingers

Every finger has a purpose in playing the saxophone, though your right thumb doesn’t move much beyond staying below the thumb rest.

The fingers are listed with abbreviations here.

‘Hand’ refers to the area between your first finger and your thumb, it’s used for the palm keys and the side keys as shown in the diagram.
