I'm shedding the TOTM (Jitterbug Waltz) and on concert Eb (F on tenor) the first notes are pretty tricky to play fast. F3 A3 E3 G3 (eights). What fingerings would you use? I tried yesterday this:

F3 - Front-F, LH 2
A3 - LH 2,3 RH 1,2,3
E3 - either the standard fork fingering of Front-F LH 2,3
G3 - Front-F, side-Bb

Worked quite well but hard to get it sound fluid on that tempo.

I hope I did remember those Front-F-fingerings correctly (I don't have my sax here at the moment) but mainly I'm asking about those altissimo fingerings on that particular run..

Thanks,
Tuomas
