Saxophone Fingering Chart

You can find a few different fingering charts for saxophone. The fingering system for all saxophones is the same – alto, tenor, soprano, bari (and even the more exotic ones).

The saxophones are not all in the same pitch though, so a ‘C’ on tenor saxophone is not the same as a ‘C’ on alto saxophone.  However, a ‘C’ on tenor saxophone is an octave lower than a ‘C’ on soprano saxophone.

Saxophone Fingering Chart

There are a few saxophone altissimo finger charts online too, I’m looking through a few of them.

I was working on flute a little bit the other day, have just played it a little bit.  The upper notes are interesting in that they’re somewhat like the lower notes, but with bigger differences.

Overall, the fingering system for saxophone (and clarinet and flute) isn’t quite as intuitive as a piano. It does fit pretty well to your hands though.

Knowing the alternate fingerings can give you a bit of an edge in playing things more smoothly.
