I'm new to this forum (and new to the saxophone actually). I started teaching myself Alto sax yesterday and I'm fine with the first octave, and all the other notes in the 2nd octave apart from D2!
When I finger D1 and then hold down the octave key it sounds an A2 rather than a D2. I don't get this problem with any other note other than D. Does anyone know what could be causing this? I'm definitely holding down the keys fully and have tried various adjustments to my embouchure.
If anyone has any ideas of what's going on I wold be very grateful.
