Re: Realllly high A
Even with the fingering though, make sure you do it the right way. Don't change your embochure, any change should be in the throat. Before you start in to the altissimo range try fingering a low note (like start on a Bb) and try to hit all the overtone series, (without changing embouchure, or fingering except for the octive key use that at will) like if you start on Bb it will be Bb F Bb F and just keep jumping higher till everyone complains about you squeking(don't listen to them every sax player who get's into altissimo has to deal with it). After a while try to get to the point where you can play charge. One more tip, don't alway's use the same fingering, there are many many altissimo fingering's, and they are all for different occasions (like the one I got stuck into using at first was Octive |X23|XXX|) Just try to find a chart with all the good fingerings, and practice all of them. You never know when an alternate will come in handy.
