Saxophone Fingering Chart – Beginning Saxophone

Sax finger chart from Randy Hunter – beginningsax.com.

It includes two fingerings for Bb on the staff.  There are a few more- one main one where you use the B fingering with the first fingering of your right hand (the one that is pressed for the note F).

At the top, it goes to F.  Some saxophones have F# keys and there is an alternate fingering for F# that helps when you don’t have the key and is actually easier to use in some situations.

This chart works for all saxophones -alto, tenor, soprano, bari, etc.
