try fingering charts link on this site......Notes above F# are harmonics. This means that they fingered the same (or very similar) to pre-existing notes. Therefore they require over blowing, and different embouchure than notes within normal sax range. Change of embouchure is hard for sax players, because you play most of the instrument with very little difference. But good luck, if you have a specific problem with a certain note, drop me a line or post some more.
Happy Blowing
