    This is a chart I refer to from time to time. I'm suprised your teacher just handed you a sax and left you to figure it out on your own.

    Sounds very irresponsible to me... seeing as in total, there are 1,124,000,727,777,607,680,000 possible combinations of keys on the sax...

    Take a look.. save it on your computer.. but please, don't distribute this link to your friends!

    Im not sure what was that you were looking. But I wondered some time for fingering charts and they all just showed the general saxophones chart. Not the ones that it really sounds.
    Like the "general saxophone" G that you play just your left hand fingers. is in alto Bb, and in Tenor F
    Correct if im wrong but that's how i learned it.
    And all those charts confused me a lot because I was the only one playing sax and i always had start counting how was it "okay they want me to play E.. so i gotta play F#" and now I have just started really learning where comes E and such, not the ones i have to translate all the time. What it is in some saxophone general chart for all saxophones.

    Thou I just heard that its important to learn the all-saxophone-chart too because in bigger bands the sax sections uses it.
    Am I right?
