I have been putting quite some work into this in recent months and finally some results were showing - well I had to look up alternate fingerings for notes C and above so something must be moving.

Here are some excellent charts with many alternatives for each notes and even comments regarding suitability for different saxophones:


Check out An excellent site and useful page not only with fingerings, but tips on how to reach these notes better. Looks like there is alot on this site. I need to look closer. Another good site to be explored.

I found this nice article by Dr. Dave Camwell originally written for the Saxophone Journal. It contains a huge amount of advice, practice methods and excercises; an excellent read for anyone hoping to improve in this area.
