    Default Altissimo fingering chart for Selmer Mark VI

    Hi, I'm looking for a clear and understandable altissimo fingering chart for my Selmer Mark VI tenor. Does anyone have any suggestions or good links for this?

    There is no such thing. Altissimo is very dependent on the players skills, the mouthpiece, reed and sax. Even the same model of sax the fingering may vary. Do a search for altissimo and you will see what I´m talking about. You´ll have to do lots of overtones. Get the Rascher book "top tones". That was the book I absorbed for altissimo.

    The following link has been posted previously on this Forum, and it covers alot of options for every note. Hopefully you can find one or two in there that work for your Mark VI.

    The Top-Tones altissimo chart works good with mine.

    I like the chart in the "Michael Brecker Collection" transcription book. Those fingerings are in-tune and work well for split-tones and the like. Chart goes to F4.
