Saxophone Fingering Chart – Learn How to Play All the Notes on Saxophone! Diagrams

(This fingering chart is for alto/tenor/soprano/bari, all saxophones)

It’s also a web based chart, not meant to be printed. Check out http://SaxophoneTribe.com which includes a printer friendly version.

If you are just starting to play, here is a video where you can also see my fingers for the mid range of the saxophone.

Why the format of this fingering chart?

Saxophone technique alone does not make a great musician…..

But it does enable a sax player to be great.

Not needing to think about technique allows the you to connect to music and share what is inside of you.

Most saxophone fingering charts are on one sheet of paper.  This one would take a lot more paper than that if it was printed out, so don’t do that.

Having the diagrams separately but larger allows you to see everything clearly and for more notes to be included right next to the keys themselves.

The diagrams for the different notes are set up like you’re holding and playing the saxophone in front of you.

The keys on your right will be on the right side of the diagram.

This seemed more intuitive to me.

Most of the chart you can get to from this page, you can sign up on the side with your email to get a password for the fingering chart on this page.  Head over to Saxophone Tribe to learn more about playing the saxophone – with more lessons, connections, and places to ask questions.
