Let me know if you want to learn this one.
How to play the Pink Panther Theme by Henry Mancini, first part, on soprano sax.
Getting the high notes, i.e. in the upper part of the second octave and into the third octave
4 weeks, 7 days a week
Do you not know where to put your fingers for the higher notes?
What is your question?
Be more specific, thanks
Good morning, Neal
Thank you for your reply, and for tackling my question.
I know where to put my fingers to play the notes (I have used your fingering video and several fingering charts in tutor books) but I can’t achieve the embouchure to sound the notes. I usually manage A and B in the upper octave but C comes out squeaky (if at all) and I cannot get D, E and F.
I hope that is specific enough.
Keep practicing everyday, play the notes below them and transition to the notes that are harder for you.
It can take some time to get the full range of the saxophone. You have only played four weeks, but you should get them before too long with consistent practice and focus on those those in particular.
I eventually got the low notes by approaching from above, so let’s hope a similar method will work upwards too!
The form on this melody basically has two parts. First note is a concert G, so A on tenor and E on alto. I have seen some covers where it is played higher on alto, I listened to a live recording of Paul McCartney and played it in a range more like he did.
