What do you mean by high notes? Do you mean the D, Eb, E and F in the 3rd octave (palm-key notes) or do you mean the ones higher than that (altissimo notes). You can get the fingerings for both in the charts here, but you may not be able to play the altissimo notes - these require weeks of practise.

Check the fingering on the Woodwind Fingering Guide http://www.wfg.woodwind.org/sax/ for some real help.

BTW - the original post is going on 4 years old. You're a bit late ...

It's probably not a good idea to offer advice if you yourself don't know the correct fingerings...GBK

Well I think you are talking about altissimo notes. They are super high notes that are for saxophones. Mostly used in jazz. The next altissimo note after F is G and onward. I can play a D altissimo. That is my highest note. Altissimo notes go past the palm key notes. There are many fingering charts on the internet. Look them up.
