Low Notes

1311 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  f1alan

I have been learning to play alto sax for the past couple of years and I'm quite happy with tone production in the middle and to an extent, the high register. However, I have an issue with the low register.

I can play the low B flat and low C, but the low B sounds exactly the same as low C.

I'm pretty sure I am fingering it properly but have attached a few images below that should show what I am doing.

Both hands

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks a lot for your help Dave and Pete. I was getting the fingering wrong - I misread my diagram. I also found a sticky key which wasn't helping either.

Thanks again,
