Altissimo Fingering Chart
Altissimo Fingering Chart for alto saxophone. This is a chart of all the fingerings I have personally found most useful over the years. I have developed this particular order so that finger movement is minimal to play a chromatic scale. In addition, learning these fingerings and sticking with them has proven to make the altissimo register quite managable. Enjoy!
