G is bad. No getting around it.

On alto you might try some of the alternate fingerings to find one that works well for you - I use LH 1 and 3 plus RH 1 and side Bb. It's a little clumsy back and fort with F# with the fork F plus RH 1 and side Bb - easier to go up than down in this case.

No matter what horn, G is just a bear and takes work. I like saxoclese's phrase - the "taste" of G. It's one of the notes that you really have to have a good idea of voicing before you play it.
